This report is the third in a series of nine supplementary reports which provide supporting information for the National Rivers Authority, Water Resources Development Strategy document: "An environmentally sustainable water resources development strategy for England and Wales. An important element of the work involved in the data generation process for the water resources development strategy is to define the magnitude of the demands which are to be met from the resource options being considered in the strategy. In order to perform this assessment accurately, and to provide information in an appropriate format for the resource allocation model RESPLAN, it is necessary to consider the resource/demand balance in terms of demand centres. A demand centre is a discrete area of public water supply demand in which specific sources of supply can be used to meet demand within that area. A demand centre could constitute: an entire company distribution network; a combination of zones within one or more companies; an individual company zone; a combination of one or more entire company distribution networks and zones.
