Abstract
Based on available information, an assessment was made on the past, present and future water withdrawals, returns, and consumptive use in the Great Lakes basin. Detailed information were presented on: current water withdrawals for major sectors; past trends in demand by sectors and corresponding trends in related factors such as population growth and economic growth; forecasted water use demand by credible agencies or sources; and, additional significant factors, including climate change, which may affect forecasted projections and trends in water use demand. Also provided a high-level analysis of how water use and demand on the upper Great Lakes is expected to change over the next 30 years (to 2040).
