                                                    BUILDING WATER USE REDUCTION CALCULATOR

    Basic Requirements
    8. Building Water Use Reduction (Residential and Non-residential Uses): Reduce planned indoor potable water consumption below the baseline (ANSI/ASME and City
    Ordinance) by a minimum of 15%.

    Water
    2. Indoor Potable Water Use Reduction (Residential and Non-residential Uses): Reduce planned indoor potable water use below the baseline (ANSI/ASME and City
    Ordinance) by a minimum of 20% (1 point), 25% (2 points), or 30% (3 points).


    Instructions
    The calculator compares the estimated indoor potable water use of the proposed Design to the Baseline and calculates the percent savings of the Design Case over the
    Baseline Case. The calculator is divided into three sections for Flush Fixtures, Flow Fixtures, and Residential Appliances. In each section, select from the pull-down
    menus the type of fixture for the Design and the corresponding Baseline. The charts for the pull-down menus are located below the calculator. Users may customize the
    charts with project specific data in the green cells. Flow fixtures reference ANSI/ASME Standard A112.18.1 and flush fixtures reference ANSI/ASME Standard A112.19.6 or
    A112.19.2 (exception code urinal flush rate set by Ordinance No. 20071018-086 Section 411.3.1) determine the Baseline.

    Annual Work Days - Number of days per year the facility is open for business and fully staffed. For multifamily developments, this is 365 days per year.

    Flush Fixture - Select using the pulldown menu. When a fixture is chosen from the menu, the corresponding gallons per flush (GPF) are automatically entered in the
    Flowrate column. The Flush Fixture Chart (below the calculator) may be customized by the user with the project specific fixtures and flowrates in the green highlighted cells.
    Use the Standard Toilet and Code Urinal for the baseline.
    Flow Fixture - Select using the pulldown menu. When a fixture is chosen from the menu, the corresponding gallons per minute (GPM) at flowing water pressure of 60 psi for
    lavoratory fixtures and 80 psi for showerheads are automatically entered in the Flowrate column. Use the Standard fixtures for the baseline.
    Fixtures whose flow rates are regulated by health codes may be excluded. For example, fixtures used for filling sinks used for dishwashing in which a certain temperature
    water must be maintained.
    ID - Identifier for the fixture / appliance type for the purpose of organizing or categorizing project data. Select using the pulldown menu. The ID Chart may be customized by
    the user to reflect fixture / appliance location or user or anything else that may aid in organizing the data.

    Daily Uses - Daily Use is the number of times an occupant typically uses a fixture in one business day. Suggested daily uses are per the Daily Use Chart below.

    Duration - Duration is the length of time a fixture is used by an occupant during one Daily Use. Durations are per the Flow Fixture Chart below.

    Occupants - Occupants refer to the number of people that will use a fixture in a typical business day. The total number of occupants are usually assumed to be
    half male and half female except for specialty businesses.

    Residential Appliance - Select using the pulldown menu. When an appliance is chosen from the menu, the corresponding gallons per load or gallons per cycle are
    automatically entered in the Water Use column. The Residential Appliance Chart (below the calculator) may be customized by the user with the project specific appliances
    and water use rates. Use the Regular Dishwasher and Clothes Washer for the baseline. Commercial use of residential appliances is applicable in this calculator.

    Clothes - Washer use in loads per week. The Clothes Washer Usage Chart lists recommended useage rates based on the number on occupants in the living unit.

    Annual Water Collected - Annual gallons of condensate, rainwater, or other substituted potable water for indoor building use, such as toilet flushing. See
    Rainwater and Condensate calculator.

                        IRRIGATION WATER USE REDUCTION CALCULATOR

        Water - Irrigation
        1. Irrigation Water Reduction - Reduce the use of potable water for landscape irrigation purposes by 50% (1
        point) , 75% (2 points) , or 100% (3 points) through use of indigenous plants, high efficiency irrigation
        technology, or captured rain or recycled site water to reduce the load on municipal water systems, saving water
        and energy.

        Instructions
        1. First, the evapotranspiration rate (ET0) for July is used in the calculation because this is typically the month
        with the greatest evapotranspiration effects and therefore the greatest irrigation demands. The reference
        Evapotranspiration ET0 for Austin in July is 8.12.

        2. Next, complete the Design Case Table. List all of the landscape types included in your project. The typical
        landscape types are already listed in the pulldown menus. Add any landscape types that are not listed in the
        blank rows. For each landscape type, note the area in square feet. All of the square footages must add up to
        the entire site area for the project. Next, to assign the appropriate species factor, density factor, and
        microclimate factor for each landscape type, enter: 1(low); 2(avg); 3(high). For any landscape types that you
        add, you will need to provide the appropriate coefficient values. It may be helpful to reference the Species
        Factor, Density Factor, and Microclimate Factor Charts at the bottom of this sheet. Finally choose the irrigation
        efficiency for your system. The pulldown boxes include common irrigation system efficiencies for sprinkler and
        drip irrigation systems. In the adjacent cell you may enter your own irrigation system efficiency if known.

        3. If the project uses a graywater or stormwater reuse system, input the estimated volume of reuse for the
        month of July. The table automatically calculates the total potable water applied (TPWA) for each landscape
        type and the overall TPWA for the site.
        4. Repeat the above steps in the Baseline Case Table using conventional plant species and plant densities.
        When establishing the Baseline Case assumptions do not change the overall area of the site. Planting types
        should approximately coorespond in both the baseline and design cases. Calculations will be reviewed for
        reason based assumptions.
        5. Compare the amount of reduction to the requirements listed above to determine if the project can qualify for
        one to three points.

                          RAINWATER and CONDENSATE CALCULATOR

      Instructions
      1. This spreadsheet can be used to calculate the amount of rainwater and/or condensate the project can
      collect and use towards points under the Irrigation Water Reduction credit (Water Credit 1) and/or the
      Indoor Potable Water Use Reduction Credit (Water Credit 2). Green cells are input cells, all other cells are
      protected. Red values are calculated by the spreadsheet.

      2. Rainwater collection and condensate collection are calculated separately then combined on a monthly basis
      in the Total Water Collection Table. The table assumes that the same tank(s) are used for storing both
      rainwater and condensate, and the water collected in these tanks is used only for Irrigation or Indoor Potable
      Water Use Reduction.

      3. If your project plans to use collected water for toilets or urinals, fill out the Plumbing Water Demand Table
      for toilets and urinals that are using collected rainwater or condensate water. If your project plans to collect
      rainwater, complete the Rainwater Collection Data Table. If your project plans to collect condensate,
      complete the Condensate Collection Table.

      4. The Total Water Collection Table tabulates the calculations for rainwater and condensate collection,
      subtracts water used each month for Irrigation and/or Indoor Potable Water Use Reduction, and tracks the
      monthly storage in the tank(s) assuming average rainfall.
      Monthly Irrigation Demand - monthly irrigation water demand. Enter the "July Irrigation Water Demand [gal]"
      from the Irrigation Calculator (line 29) into the July value (green cell) Total Water Collection Table. This will
      populate the Irrigation Demand for each month.
      Monthly Plumbing Demand - monthly demand for toilets and urinals using collected rainwater and/or
      condensate water.
      Avg. Rainfall Collected - based on average monthly rainfall for Austin and Available Roof Area.
      Avg. Condensate Collected - the average monthly condensate collected. Based on bin weather data for
      Austin and Condensate Collection Data Table inputs.
      Avg. End of Month Storage - amount of water in the storage tank at the end of each month based on the
      initial tank level, water collected through rainwater and condensate collection, and water used for irrigation,
      toilets, and urinals.

      Plumbing Water Demand Table

      Complete the green fields: the number of people using toilets and urinals that use collected rainwater and/or
      condensate water, the number of times per day that each person will use the toilet or urinal, and the gallons of
      water consumed per use. The spreadsheet will estimate total demand (Gal. / month) assuming 22 weekdays
      per month. This data will populate the Plumbing Demand column in the Total Water Collection Table.

      Rainwater Collection Data Table
      Enter the Available Roof Area (collection area) and Tank Data for rainwater collection tank(s). If tank(s) has
      been left on site during construction and is allowed to fill to capacity, the Beginning Gallons in Storage value is
      the tank(s) capacity. This value must not be greater than the Total Capacity of Storage.

      Condensate Collection Data Table
      1. Enter data into the green fields. Select your Building Type from the drop down list. Refer to the Building
      Occupancy Schedules Table to see what building type most closely represents your building's occupancy
      hours. The estimate of condensate collected is calculated using bin weather data for Austin assuming the
      HVAC system is operating only when the building is occupied.
      2. If using a variable flow system, estimate the cfm flow reduction (in percent) that the variable system is able
      to achieve compared to a constant volume system. Select the closest value from the drop down list for
      Approximate CFM Reduction. The condensate estimate will be reduced proportional to the reduction in outside
      air introduced due to variable flow.

        2a and b. Envelope and Structure: Incorporate at least 40% (surface area) of existing building
        envelope (including exterior skin and framing, excluding window assemblies and non-structural
        roofing material) and structure (including framing, structural floor and roof decking) in the new
        building. (40% 1 point, 80% 2 points)
        3. Interior Non-Structural Elements: Incorporate at least 50% (surface area) of interior non-
        structural elements (walls, doors, floor coverings and ceiling surfaces) in the new building.
        (1 point)

        Instructions

        1. Complete the Structure Table by identifying all structural elements in the project and estimate the
        square footage of existing structural elements and reused structural elements. The Table
        automatically calculates the percentage of each structural element reused and the overall structural
        reuse percentage.


        2. Complete the Envelope Table by identifying all envelope elements in the project and estimate the
        square footage of existing envelope elements and reused envelope elements. The Table
        automatically calculates the percentage of each envelope element reused and the overall envelope
        reuse percentage.

        3. Compare this percentage of building envelope and structure reuse to the requirement of 40%.

        4. Complete the Interior Table by identifying all interior elements in the project and estimate the
        square footage of existing interiors elements and reused interior elements. The table automatically
        calculates the percentage of each interior element reused and the overall interior element reuse
        percentage.

        5. Compare the percentage of building interior reuse to the requirement of 50%.
