PDF (1,012kb) or HTML The basin water use profile provides an inventory of water use and water development projects. It not only provides the necessary understanding of the location, source, and quantity of basin water use, but also provides an understanding of how water is used.
PDF (815kb) or HTML The basin water quality profile provides an inventory of current water quality issues and trends in the basin. Similar to the existing water use profile, surface and ground water quality was assessed in preparation for subsequent sections in the report.
PDF (1,079kb) or HTML Water supply planning requires consideration of many factors, including hydrology, water quality, physical facilities, and legal and institutional requirements. Surface water spreadsheet models were developed in this section.
PDF (1,380kb) or HTML The starting point for the development of water demand projections requires an understanding of the current economic and demographic conditions in the basin. The identification of historic changes and trends in the basin, plus the evaluation of the most important sectors from an economic and water use standpoint, helped define the emphasis for future economic and demographic scenarios.

There are two versions of the model which can be selected for each of the three hydrologic conditions. The differences between the versions lie in the manner in which the ungaged reach gains and losses are determined. To determine which of the two versions to select please read the following Model Version Selection Memorandum.
* Please note that these files are in read only format. Any changes to the model made by the user may change the results and must be saved with a new file name.
** For Windows XP users - Due to additional security levels, XP users may have to manually
change their security levels. If you receive a message when opening Microsoft Excel that reads as follows:
"Macros in this workbook are disabled because the security level is high..." click OK and perform the following
routine: Under the Tools menu, click on Macro then Security. Change the Security Level to Medium, this will enable
the user to go to the Spreadsheet Model Main Menu.
