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

A brief description of the water metering employed:

All Housing buildings have individual meters. Most other buildings also have meters, but a number of buildings are on a "water loop" without individual meters, this will hopefully be rectified in the near future.

Exemption meters for Irrigation, Cooling Towers, and other water uses that do not go to sewage are present to calculate accurate sewer charges.

New Buildings and recent remodel's have water meters that report to the BAS.

Utility water meter usage is recorded in the Utility Manager Server to accurately track usage.


The percentage of building space with water metering:
90

The website URL where information about the practice is available:

PSU is currently in the process of metering each utility for each building. An initial assessment has been completed, funding has been secured to add meters to Smith Memorial Student Union in FY11. We are in the process of securing funding for additional buildings, starting with buildings attached to the heating, cooling, water, and electricity loops.
