    Substainable development: existing infrastructure

    I am in the process of putting together a model that would be able to compare whether residential density proposed would be capable of being served based on existing sewer and water mains. I understand that there is a lot of complicated factors in figuring... but are there any rule of thumb or ballpark ways to calculate this?

    Can the Throbbing Brain help me?

    Estimate your proposed population (3.5 persons per single family home) and multiply by 100 gallons per day. Compare this to the remaining capacity of your water and sewer plants.

    Your water supply will probably be restricted by line pressure instead of plant capacity.
