LEED BD+C: Core and Shell | v4 - LEED v4

Building-level water metering

Required

Intent

To support water management and identify opportunities for additional water savings by tracking water consumption.

Requirements

Install permanent water meters that measure the total potable water use for the building and associated grounds. Meter data must be compiled into monthly and annual summaries; meter readings can be manual or automated.

Commit to sharing with USGBC the resulting whole-project water usage data for a five-year period beginning on the date the project accepts LEED certification or typical occupancy, whichever comes first.

This commitment must carry forward for five years or until the building changes ownership or lessee.
