Water consumption reporting – Link to Man 04 - KBCN1611

The link to meeting compliance with Man 04, outlined in Wat 13 Criterion 1 is incorrect and should be disregarded. Answer option D in Man 04 includes targets for Energy, Water and Waste. Whereas the intent of Wat 13 relates to targets for Water only. This will be updated in the next reissue of the technical manual.
