The maintenance department of AVS works round the clock to ensure providing various facilities smoothly. Some of the facilities maintained are :
 

Water Supply System


Ground water is the only source of water supply to the School. There are 4 deep tube wells located within the campus. All the tube wells are sunk to a depth of 275 to 300 feet.

Water Supply to Main Campus Area
Tube well No 1 & 4 are connected to Pump House No 1. Raw water is pumped into the underground tank having a capacity of 70,000 litres. From this tank water is pumped through the pressure carbon filtration plant and chlorinator and discharged into the treated water chamber having a capacity of 70,000 litres. The filtration plant is run for approximately 12 hours every day. From this chamber water is pumped to the overhead tank by means of a single 15 hp pump. The overhead tank is located at a height of 30 meters. From the overhead tank water is distributed to the end users through gravity by means of an underground network of pipes configured as a ring main to ensure constant pressure at all ends. Water consumption from this source is recorded & logged daily.

Water Supply to Maintenance Staff Housing, Riding School & Security Barracks
Tube well No 3 is connected to Pump House No 2. Raw water is pumped into the underground tank having a capacity of 70 000 litres. From this tank the water is pumped through the pressure carbon filtration plant and chlorinator and discharged into the treated water chamber having a capacity of 70 000 litres. The filtration plant is run for approximately 5 hours every day. From this chamber water is pumped to the overhead tank by means of two 7.5 hp pumps. The overhead tank is located at a height of 30 metres. From the overhead tank water is distributed to the end users through gravity by means of an underground network of pipes.

Water Supply to the Swimming Pool
Tube well No 2 by means of a branch line is utilised to fill the swimming pool and replenish water on a daily basis. Raw water is pumped into the Swimming Pool having a capacity of 7,00,000 litres of water. Swimming pool water is treated by means of an independent pressure carbon / iron removal filtration plant. The treated water is further subjected to chemical dosing containing chlorine, soda ash & alum to render the water within permissible limits for swimming. The filtration plant run every day for 8 hours and back washed & cleaned every day. This cycle ensure that the swimming pool water is cleaned entirely.
 


Sewerage System


The campus has an extensive underground sewerage system for every cluster of buildings. The system incorporates a network of discharging pipes connected to manholes and thereafter to septic tanks and soak pits for treatment of the sewage. The treated effluent is finally connected to the nearby natural drains.

The sewage and waste pipes used within buildings are cast iron up to the nearest manhole. Thereafter glazed stoneware pipes are used externally to carry the discharge to the septic tanks & soak pits. Rainwater discharge is carried to the nearest natural drains by means of open drains.
