Structural plans have been drawn up in the Netherlands for the various sectors of government administration. These long-term plans, by their very nature and extent, are only of a provisional character. Within this framework a master plan on how to meet future drinking and industrial water demands has been prepared by the National Institute for Water Supply.

Until recent years, various types of trend extrapolation were used for all forecasts of water demand. At this moment a Component Method of Forecasting is in practice. Recent research programs have resulted in detailed data on industrial, commercial, public and household water uses. Several factors which determine water use are discussed in this paper.
