Micro-component Per Capita Consumption Forecasting
Severn Trent Water
Severn Trent Water commissioned RPS to develop and deploy a modelling tool that produced scenario based micro-component forecasts of household demand.
As part of future water resource planning, the modelling assessed projected household water consumption for 16 geographical distinct areas, 2 planning scenarios (normal year and dry year, with and without the effects of climate change), several household metering categories and 6 micro-components. The project included the assessment of the potential effects on water consumption from future water efficiency measures and ensured compliance with the Environment Agency's latest Water Resources Planning Guideline.
