Subject: water demand consumption   
Posted: 11/14/2016 Viewed: 7969 times
I have a problem about creating an urban demand site. I know that "Annual Activity Level" is the number of people who live in that urban area; Also "Annual Water Use Rate" is the amount of water that is used by a person during a year. I have these two data, but my problem is "Consumption" tab. How can I calculate this section?
Thank you

Dear Mahsa,

Consumption means the amount of water that does not return into the system through a return flow. You'll notice that WEAP defaults to 100% consumption. This is not very realistic - it is as though your city does not produce any sewage.

To calculate consumption to enter into WEAP, I would try to see what data you can find about sewage quantities, and also destinations.
