This paper provides an introduction to the theory and analytical methods of forecasting industrial water use. Two basic approaches to the problem are presented--forecasting with and without the use of demand functions for water. Section 2 discusses the widely used water use coefficient method and regression techniques for forecasting water use. Section 3 reviews the statistical and economic-engineering models for deriving industrial water demand functions. Section 4 illustrates how water demand functions can be utilized in forecasting exercises and discusses the difficulties of forecasting industrial water use.
