The LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System™ is a voluntary, consensus-based program for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings. Based on well-founded scientific standards, LEED emphasizes state-of-the-art strategies for sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
Water management is a significant component of the LEED program. Varying applications for underground water storage tanks can be used to fulfill several LEED categories. Flowtite® fiberglass storage tanks, from Containment Solutions, contribute to satisfying multiple credits of the LEED Green Building Rating System.
