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

A brief description of the water metering employed:

All buildings on North Campus have water metering, and water meters are read monthly. For domestic water, older buildings use Rockwell turbine or compound meters, with new buildings and meter upgrades incorporating Rosemount Magflow meters. Eventually all of the domestic water metering will be upgraded.

The university’s district energy system also provides demineralized water to campus, and this water system is metered using positive displacement Sensus meters.

The percentage of building space with water metering is estimated at 90 per cent. This is because, while on North Campus each building is metered at the building level, on other campuses there are some bulk meters. North Campus represents approximately 90 per cent of the building space at UAlberta.


The percentage of building space with water metering:
90
