Does the institution have building-level water consumption meters for at least one building?:

A brief description of the water metering employed:

Water consumption is monitored closely at Penn State. The potable water system on the University Park campus is owned and operated by the University. It consists of 7 production wells, storage tanks, treatment systems, connections with the local water authority for exchange and over 26 miles of distribution pipe.

There are 435 metered connections. All building water use at University Park is metered. The majority of these are at the building-level, although some may be for clusters of buildings(ex: Farm Buildings). Meters are read monthly and consumption data is stored in the ITRON Enterprise Energy Management (EEM) Suite.
