The Coyote Springs development, located in the Las Vegas area, will feature residential, recreational, and commercial uses. The developer required support for litigation concerning the community’s projected water demand.
M&A developed a demand-calculator model that captures the interactions between population, residency, density, and other factors. The model features a dashboard that allows users to select and define scenarios and graphically view results. It estimates both indoor and outdoor water demand and accomplishes the following:
- Matches the seasonal supply of on-site reclaimed water with the seasonal irrigation demand for golf courses and parks
- Disaggregates demand by housing type and density, across commercial and recreational land uses
- Considers the impacts of advanced conservation and water-efficiency measures
We also reviewed opposing counsel’s water-demand analysis and participated in depositions.
