Planning practice Water allocation


Unless you live next to the Great Lakes, water is a limited resource. I am trying to run growth projections on future land use in a fast growing area and running into some difficulties regarding nonresidential uses.

I can run residential uses based on population projections, but I was wondering if anyone had any formulas regarding nonresidential projections to predict future water consumption projections? Also what factors went into that formula? We have one large water consumer and the City Council is wondering about others coming in as we expand our industrial base.
