The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) contracted with Rutgers-The State University of New Jersey to estimate water demands in New Jersey for each Public Community Water Supply system to the year 2040.
This report was prepared for the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Division of Water Supply & Geoscience by Daniel J. Van Abs, PhD, PP/AICP, Rutgers University, in 2018.
“Water Needs through 2040 for New Jersey Public Community Water Supply Systems” results will support future water supply planning by NJDEP, including the Statewide Water Supply Plan.
This project made several important advances regarding our understanding of water supply demands and demand forecasting, and provides a detailed technical discussion of the methodology, data collection, data analyses, model development and assumptions, and results for the project.
