Water Conservation and Water Resource Management in California's Green Buildings: Data, Insights and Opportunity.

More than fifteen years after the launch of the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED green building certification program, tens of thousands of buildings around the world, including multiple thousands in the State of California, have demonstrated green building excellence above and beyond standard practice. In the midst of California’s current drought – one of the most severe on record – this analysis looks back at nearly a decade of LEED project credit achievement data to see how water conservation and water resource management has been prioritized in a major cross-section of California’s green buildings. The analysis also looks forward to illuminate how new ideas, policy levers and instruments like LEED v4 can help drive exceptional water resource use, recharge and reuse.
