This Webcast presents findings from
, which examined the potential impacts of future climate scenarios on water demand. The demand for water is highly dependent on climate, and weather-sensitive water uses typically comprise a large component of total water use. Geographical differences in climate and variability in observed weather conditions lead to differences in water usage patterns across different regions and seasonal time periods. Changes in climate from historical conditions, both in terms of mean weather conditions and variability, should be expected to influence the demand for water. The Webcast will illustrate the importance of climate in shaping water demand patterns and will estimate potential impacts from future climate scenarios for a set of case study utilities.
