Northeast Creek Reservoir (NCR) is the raw water source. NCR has a safe yield of 3.2 million gallons per day. At full build-out, AWS’ average daily raw water demand is 620,000 gallons. AWS’ daily water demand combined with current and future potable water projections of 1 million gallons per day provide an excess safe yield capacity of 1.5 million gallons per day.
1 cubic acre inch of NCR surface water = 5.1 million gallons of water
1 cubic acre foot of NCR surface water = 62 million gallons of water
This method will not utilize groundwater, so it does not contribute to any increased demand for groundwater.
