Abstract:

The Salt River Project Small Area Water Demand Forecast (forecast) is designed to provide water resource planners with long-range water demand forecasts disaggregated by user type and geographic area. Projections are based on small area water consumption factors for types of usage applied to specific land-use acreage. The small area nature of the forecast allows demand forecasts to be disaggregated by lateral and canal, as well as by geographic area.
