emily reese moody Sustainability Director, Certifications & Compliance Jacobs LEEDuser Expert 452 thumbs up March 14, 2022- 2:52 pm I have not had this come up in a project, but my guess is that since it is out of the project scope and an existing larger system, the cooling tower would not be required to meet associated requirements. There was a similar post asking about this aspect here:  https://leeduser.buildinggreen.com/forum/cooling-towers-central-plant. You will want to provide a narrative with your regular calcs explaining the systems so that it's clear to the reviewers. If you want a more certain answer, you could ask LEED Coach to be sure....

Fire station water usage?

emily reese moody Sustainability Director, Certifications & Compliance Jacobs LEEDuser Expert 452 thumbs up August 24, 2018- 2:44 pm Hi Erin, I've seen several discussions in this forum over the years specific to fire stations, but they seem to have inconsistent advice, and no confirmation of how the reviews actually went.
