WE Credit: Water Metering

  • Ensure that the submeter description includes a list of submeters, their locations, and the percentage of each subsystem metered (as applicable).
  • For indoor plumbing fixtures, ensure that at least 80% of the indoor fixtures and fittings described in WE Prerequisite Indoor Water Use Reduction are metered, either directly or by deducting all other measured water use from the measured total water consumption of the building and grounds.
  • Ensure that all at least 80% of the irrigation, domestic hot water, and/or process water is metered. If process water is submetered, cross-check that process water equipment and appliances listed elsewhere in the submittal have been addressed.
