Title:Integrating Water Efficiency into Long-Term Demand Forecasting
Research has shown that household water use across the United States is declining, even as population increases. An increase in water-efficient appliances and fixtures is a key driver in reducing per capita demand; however, many water demand forecasts do not adequately account for these improvements, and the resulting changes in per capita water usage. This webcast will explore the findings of the soon-to-be published project, Integrating Water Efficiency into Long-Term Demand Forecasting (#4495). This research provides guidance that will allow water demand forecasters to increase the reliability of their passive conservation forecasts by more accurately accounting for future sectoral water savings from new overlay building codes and requirements (e.g., green codes and regulations), changes in manufactured product standards and technologies, and third party certification programs.
