Accurate water demand projection is essential for a municipality to plan and budget to meet the future needs of the citizens in the community. However, many factors can influence the future water demand for a community, including population growth, changes in demographics, the effectiveness of water conservation initiatives, new low-demand plumbing fixture technologies and increased leakage due to aging water distribution infrastructure.

How does an engineer account for all of these factors to derive an accurate water demand projection? This course introduces the student to water demand projection methods that can accurately estimate future water consumption based on these factors. Example problems are used to illustrate the methodology. Additionally, the course covers policies that can be implemented to influence consumers' water consumption habits in an effort to reduce overall demand.
