Water Demand Studies

Both within the United States and around the globe, water supply challenges include the increasing regional demands for shared water resources, the aging of water infrastructure, declining groundwater levels, uncertainties caused by climate change, and the proliferation of renewable energy projects that require water to operate. As the world’s population continues to expand and the demand for clean and safe water increases, the need for reliable water demand forecasting becomes ever more urgent.  Marstel-Day developed a forecasting model to estimate water demand under differing scenarios, allowing regional stakeholders to resolve water use issues using commonly available assumptions about usage, costs, and environmental impacts.
