Did you know that the University recycles some of it's rainwater!
Way back when the Bamford Library was built, a system was installed to harvest the rain water for re-use.
Rainwater is harvested from the roof and deposited in a tank below the footpath on the front elevation.
It is then pumped out into a distribution main that feed the W.C. cisterns in the toilets.
There is also a “Mains” back up, as the collection tank can run dry in the summer months.
