Abstract: The Metropolitan District Commission (MDC) in Boston is preparing a long-term water supply plan for its present and potential service area. The MDC is committed to a program of water conservation as a method of reducing the amount of new supply required from additional sources of water. In order to be able to plan on a dependable supply from demand management, it was necessary to have a realistic evaluation of the potential reductions in demand and costs associated with demand management techniques. The methods used for the evaluation of, and selection among, various demand management programs were designed to maximize the reliability of the water conservation option. (Author abstract. )
