dc.description.abstractAll the water that is used in the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez (UPRM) is supplied by the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority (PRASA), but its infrastructure has proven to be fragile and results in economic losses. Alternatives to diversify water supply sources include the development of a groundwater supply system. This study evaluates the development of a groundwater supply system at the Engineering Complex. Geographic Information System (GIS) technologies, site’s characteristics and water consumption patterns allowed to design a distribution system which can be replicated to other locations inside the University. Results showed that the proposed system will save approximately $15K every year. If similar projects are developed throughout UPRM, a 37% reduction of actual costs can be achieved.en_US

Hay alternativas disponibles para diversificar las fuentes de suministro de agua lo cual incluye un sistema de extracción de agua subterránea. Este estudio evalúa el desarrollo un sistema de suministro de agua subterránea en el Complejo de Ingeniería. Las tecnologías del Sistema de Información Geográfica (GIS), las características del sitio y los patrones de consumo del lugar de estudio permitieron diseñar un sistema de distribución que se puede replicar en otras ubicaciones dentro de la Universidad. Los resultados mostraron que el sistema propuesto ahorrará aproximadamente $15K cada año. Si se desarrollan proyectos similares a lo largo del RUM, se puede ahorrar un 37% de los costos actuales.en_US
