    Description

    In areas with increasing demand for water, addressing water use objectives has long been a primary environmental objective and key concern among industrial water users including paper mills and other forest product companies. However, in recent years, water use metrics and related information (including population change, climate information, and land use characterization) have gained considerable importance to companies for addressing longer-term goals pertaining to growth and sustainability when it comes to water availability. One effort underway, lead by the National Council for Air & Steam Improvement, Inc. (NCASI), has compiled water metrics and related watershed information as a means for better understanding and projecting the demands for water in various parts of the country. This paper provides details on specific components of the effort to document water-related information on a case-by-case basis, as well as provide summary information and key findings culminating from this assessment.
