2030 Water Baseline Breakfast Briefing

Join Green Building Alliance for a Breakfast Briefing on the 2030 District Water Baseline and earn a CEU or two!



Curious about how committed buildings in Pittsburgh’s 2030 District will achieve 50% water reduction by 2030? Come hear GBA’s own Isaac Smith detail the process by which the first Pittsburgh 2030 District: Downtown water baseline came to be. Learn how historic, local water use data was aggregated in partnership with PWSA to develop individual water baselines for 12 building use types in the Pittsburgh 2030 District: Downtown.  Using this local benchmark, 2030 District committed buildings can begin measuring and tracking water consumption with comparison to average water use of similar buildings. This presentation will provide a look at the technical back-end considerations that led to the Downtown baseline.

We’ll have bagels, coffee, tea, and juice waiting for you!


  1. Develop an understanding of the Pittsburgh 2030 District: Downtown water baseline and the methodology behind its creation.
  2. Learn about individual water baselines for specific building types.
  3. Understand the potential for the Pittsburgh 2030 District Partners to reduce water consumption.
  4. Learn how the Pittsburgh 2030 District: Downtown baseline development process compares to that of other 2030 Districts.
