November 30, 2018

A new water-rating program is coming to Canada.

Built Green Canada has partnered with the Green Builder Coalition to launch the Water Efficiency Rating Score (WERS), which it said will be “Canadianized in the coming months”

WERS uses a scoring scale of zero to 100–zero being the most desirable. It accounts for indoor and outdoor water use, as well as reuse via rainwater, greywater and blackwater catchment calculations.

Verifier training for the program will occur in the spring of 2019, and Built Green is encouraging trials through 2019 for its single-family, renovations and high-density programs.

Builders will earn points toward their Built Green home certification. www.builtgreencanada.ca   www.greenbuildercoalition.org
