Every Drop Counts: Water Efficiency in LEED v4 - Update

In this one-hour course, the participant will discover how to reduce building water use by increasing efficiency and reducing potable water consumption for LEED BD+C projects. We address water consumed by fixtures, fittings, appliances, equipment, and processes including cooling towers. We also perform water use calculations, and apply these strategies to achieve points for LEED BD+C projects.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Describe the physical limits on the availability of water for human use.
  2. Calculate the baseline and design cases for indoor water use, as required for LEED v4 BD+C prerequisites Outdoor Water Use Reduction and Indoor Water Use Reduction.
  3. Review design strategies for LEED v4 BD+C project teams to reduce use and potable use of water.
  4. Assess cooling tower use and how to identify and calculate the optimal number of cycles for LEED v4 BD+C projects.
