LEED BD+C: New Construction | v2009

Innovation: Water Performance Measurement-Whole building

EBOM WEc1.1 | Possible 1 point

Intent

To measure building and subsystem water performance over time to understand consumption patterns and identify opportunities for additional water savings.

Requirements

WE Credit 1.1 (1 point): Have in place a permanently installed water meter(s) that measures the total potable water use for the entire building and associated grounds. Meter data must be recorded on a regular basis and compiled into monthly and annual summaries. Applicants are also encouraged to meter gray or reclaimed water supplied to the building.

This is acceptable if the meter is electronic data-logging readings but not acceptable if it is a plan to hand-read weekly.

Additional Requirements for Innovation credit:

Project teams must meter the whole building AND one subsystem (irrigation, cooling tower, etc.) electronically and have automated daily readings.
