Abstract: The purpose of this Technical Memorandum (TM1) is to support the evaluation of a new demand model through a benchmarking analysis of the modeling approaches used by Valley Water's peer agencies. TM1 is organized by first reviewing a conceptual typology of demand forecasting elements, which is useful in characterizing and comparing the forecasting approaches among water supply utilities. The typology is supported with a detailed discussion of several quantitative methods often used to forecast demand. Given this background and framework, TM1 reviews the forecasting approaches employed by several regional water supply providers and wholesale agencies. -- pages 1-2. Table of Contents: 1. Typology for demand forecasting -- 2. Spectrum of associative and statistical modeling methods -- 3. Forecasting approaches employed by selected Bay Area providers -- 4. Forecasting approaches employed by peer wholesale agencies -- 5. Summary of benchmarking analysis -- Citations.
