Regional Groundwater Update• TWDB Coordination: Region H / GMA 14 – Project’s County Population Projections to be used in Region H – Region H Water User Group (WUG) populations will be based on Project’s data – Project’s new Houston Area Groundwater Model (HAGM) to become regional model for Region H and Groundwater Management Area 14 (GMA 14)
  13. 13. POPULATION PROJECTIONS• Metrostudy – Short term: 2010 – 2020 annual increments – Quarterly housing surveys – Knowledge of future housing development – Considers regional economic outlook, quality of schools, current and future transportation planning, etc. 15
  14. 14. POPULATION PROJECTIONS• University of Houston Center for Public Policy – Long term: 2030 – 2070 decadal – Models historical patterns in job creation and employment sub-centers statistically – Projects population based on long term forecast of economic growth and number and location of future jobs 16
  15. 15. POPULATION & DEMANDPROJECTIONS• Tract Level Projections – 1,039 tracts in 5 primary counties 17
  16. 16. POPULATION PROJECTIONS• Distributed to Census Blocks – H-GAC land use data – 114,200 blocks in 5 primary counties 18

  29. 29. Scenario 1 - Growth Beyond 2010 on Groundwater(No Additional Surface Water) • Harris and Galveston Counties (HGSD) – No increase in surface water supply beyond 2010 conversions. – No assumed reductions in surface water supply and all future increases in water demand are met with groundwater (Areas 1, 2, and 3). – Does not include Area 3 2020 70% groundwater reductions or 2030 80% groundwater reductions. – Future growth beyond 2010 supplied by groundwater in Areas 1 and 2. • Fort Bend County (FBSD) – Assumes no conversions in 2014, 2016, or 2025. All future growth supplied with groundwater. • Montgomery County (LSGCD) – No groundwater reductions in Montgomery County. • Brazoria County (BCGCD) – No groundwater reductions in Brazoria County.
