As part of the research on the treatment of water resources, APSCC participated in the UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education, the largest international graduate water education facility in the world and is based in Delft, the Netherlands. The program provided the participants with theoretical background and practical expertise in the field of groundwater abstraction and treatment. It covered Ground Water Flow and Recovery, Water Quality and Treatment, Advanced Groundwater Treatment, Computer Exercise and Laboratory Course on Water Chemistry.

Following this program, the APSCC team developed an unique design for constructed wetland, that mimics what happens in a natural wetland, using locally available native plant species. The study proved that Arundo species are equally efficient compared with the Typha species, that is prominent for these kind of applications.
