LEED BD+C: Multifamily Midrise | v4 - LEED v4

Water metering



To support water efficiency efforts by monitoring and benchmarking water use over time.


Case 1. Single family

Install a whole-house water meter. Single-family attached homes may share a whole-building water meter if landscaping is commonly managed and any units that will not achieve LEED certification are separately metered.

Encourage homeowners or tenants to share water usage data with USGBC via a USGBC-approved third-party.

Homes that use only well water and are not connected to a municipal water system are exempt from this prerequisite.

Case 2. Multifamily

Install a water meter or submeter for each unit or the entire building.

Encourage homeowners or tenants to share water usage data with USGBC via a USGBC-approved third-party by describing the benefits of participation in the Homeowner Education Manual.
