The Model’s estimate of water useVolume or rate of water diverted or withdrawn from a water body (e.g. a stream, lake, or groundwaterAll water beneath the surface of the ground whether in liquid or solid state. aquiferA geological formation that contains sufficient saturated permeable material to yield significant quantities of water to wells and springs.) for use by humans on the land surface. Actual water use is determined through direct measurement. for livestock is based on the number of animals in RDN as determined by the latest census, the drinking water required for each animal per day and the barn or milking parlour wash water.
Values used are shown in Table K.
For RDN, the amount of livestock water is estimated at 86,356 m3.
