The purpose of this appendix is to appraise the present municipal and industrial water supply situation, to analyze its future needs and development potential, and to evaluate the needs of subareas as a basis for making recommendations for measures which will serve those needs. Consideration of municipal and industrial water supply as a part of a comprehensive plan for development and management of water and related land resources is essential to provide a means for orderly development of water supplies. The scope of this appendix limits projection of municipal and industrial water supply requirements to the years 1980, 2000, and 2020. Appraisal of the 1980 requirements includes consideration of quantity, quality, and seasonal variations of supply and demand. The need identified is of an immediate nature and may be directly related to the development of a comprehensive plan for readily foreseeable developments. The long-range plans, which are naturally more conjectural, are more general in nature and point toward the needs of major subareas of the basin. The study area is confined to the Willamette Basin however, the strong geographical and economic interrelations and interactions between the Willamette Basin, the Pacific Northwest, and the Nation will influence the level of municipal and industrial water demand in the basin. As an example, increased market area population will result in an enlarged market for processed food. Additional food-processing capacity will result in an increased demand for process water and water for the additional population supported by the industrial employment.
