August 16, 2012, Oakland, CA: The Urban Water Demand to 2100 model will make it easier for state agencies, water utilities, and others to explore scenarios of future water use and identify possible response options.

Scenarios are not “predictions,” but rather tools to test hypotheses, data, and assumptions about future urban demand and potential response strategies. Scenario-based planning can help compare potential futures and different response strategies.
