Regional Water Demand and Conservation Projections, Bay Area Water Supply and Conservation Agency, San Mateo, California

Representing the interests of 26 member agencies that purchase water wholesale from the San Francisco regional water system, BAWSCA wanted to update their demand and water efficiency goals. Key components of the plan included:

  • Working with BAWSCA agencies to determine the status of current conservation plans and identify where updates to plans have occurred since completing the 2009 study.
  • Modifying demand projections following review and input from BAWSCA and member agencies, and providing final demand projections by agency to BAWSCA with and without conservation.
  • Developing alternative implementation schedules for meeting conservation goals of BAWSCA and its member agencies. Each alternative presented included packages of conservation measures to achieve the stated goal, identify associated costs, and provide an implementation schedule.

Catawba-Wateree Water Management Group Benchmarking Survey of Current Successful Water Demand Management Programs, North & South Carolina

The benchmarking survey focused on quantifying the costs, savings and scope of a successful long-term water efficiency program. The report answered typical agency questions such as: “What is everyone else in the industry doing?”; “Are there any new ideas I have not considered?”; and “How much should I budget for a successful conservation program?” The answers were presented in summary tables with real data on what the leading conservation agencies in the nation were currently doing.

Water Supply and Conservation Plan and Update, Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District, Atlanta, Georgia

Maddaus Water Management has been working with Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District for the past 14 years. Four separate reports have been released since 2003 summarizing analysis results. For the current effort in 2016, Michelle Maddaus is Project Manager for the Water Conservation and Demand Analysis update to be released in 2017. Michelle trained, managed and performed QA/QC for the four-member modeling team to update the DSS Models. The models were updated using new water use data and new regional population projections. In the 16-county area, there are more than 25 water-providing agencies and more than 30 water treatment plants. The area currently uses an average of nearly 700 million gallons per day of water.

Conservation Analysis for Long-Term Water Supply Plan, City of Santa Barbara, California

MWM assessed the City’s water use patterns and trends and the conservation potential; reviewed its water conservation program; in conjunction with another firm, prepared a water conservation chapter in the overall water supply study report; and recommended an approach to developing a water conservation plan for the City. Later, MWM detailed evaluation of water savings, costs, and benefits from additional water conservation programs.
