Understanding Water and LEED: From Rainwater to Metering and Everything in Between
Friday, November 10, 2017 | 8:00am – 9:00am

LEED v4 addresses water holistically, taking into account indoor use, outdoor use, specialized uses and metering. It measures all sources of water related to a building, including cooling towers, appliances, fixtures, fittings, process water, and irrigation. Additionally, in LEED v4, buildings can earn up to 3 points by achieving the new Rainwater Management credit and earn exemplary performance in this credit by managing 100% of rainwater using Low Impact Development and green infrastructure. This session will present an overview of resources, strategies as well as tips for successful credit achievement. Attendees will hear from USGBC and GBCI experts about how water is addressed in LEED today and also what’s on the horizon for future development.

Fellow presenters include:
