Abstract:
The Tucson Water Department has developed a long-range water master plan utilizing a computerized hydraulic modeling system from which to determine size and phasing of major water capital improvements. Alternative water sources and amounts were modeled under a fifty-year peak demand condition. Nodal pressure, pipeline headloss, and reservoir drawdown results were evaluated against pre -set standards to determine the optimal solution to the supply- demand balance. A mid-range demand condition for 1990 was modeled subsequent to the modeling of the 2030 planning horizon to incorporate a major domestic water source change. Sizing of new facilities will he based upon the long-range solution. Phasing of capital improvements will he based upon existing system deficiencies, rate and spatial distribution of growth, delivery date of new imported surface supply, and the availability of funds for water project construction.
