Water Demand Analysis and Forecasting
Hazen and Sawyer has cultivated long- and short-term forecasting methods that stretch across a spectrum of technical detail and client needs, from traditional approaches to detailed approaches that incorporate multiple causal factors and uncertainty. We have also developed thoroughly-quantified, utility-specific methods for assessing current and future water savings due to active conservation programs and passive increases in efficiency in response to increasing market prevalence of high-efficiency fixtures.
The simplest and most traditional long-term forecasts are usually based on per capita demand intensity and population projections. We regularly extend beyond those methods to incorporate
Water Conservation and Efficiency Analyses
Hazen and Sawyer is also well-steeped in conservation planning and end-use analyses of water efficiency. We go beyond the application of standard assumptions to assess conservation potential and achievement, performing deep detailed profiles of actual customer-level water use characteristics.
Water Demand Research
Through eight separate engagements with the Water Research Foundation over the last five years, Hazen has performed more research into methods for characterizing, managing, and forecasting water demand than any other private firm in the world. These research efforts have been supported by case studies involving utility participants across the United States and Canada.
