[Full Text]



Nur Diyana Mohamad, Zulfa Hanan Ash’aari, Nurfatin Izzati Ahmad Kamal



land use, population forecast, urban, water demand



Putrajaya city has transformed from rubber plantation in the late 1920s into federal administrative centre due to overcrowding and congestion in the former. Since the relocation of the administrative capital, many government servants had been encourage to move to the city and sudden increased of the population grow to more than 100,000 in recent year. This situation boosted a strong economic appeal, which expand urban activities and population growth, especially urbanization process. Thus, the city government should contemplate the allotment of land use effectively based on sustainable water resources. As the corresponding pressure on water resources keep on increasing, it is vital to identify the water demand future in Putrajaya City related to domestic and non-domestic activities as the first step to optimize land use allocation. Domestic sectors is define as household and public hydrant, while non-domestic sectors include offices, industrial areas, public amenities and utilities. Result shown that the total city population forecast in 2030 amounted to 150,124 people, increasing by more than 40,000 people from 2019. From the estimation, the domestic water consumption in 2019 multiplied from 614,150 litre/day to 888,231 litre/day in 2030. Thus, the water needs of the population of Putrajaya from 2019-2030 year increased by 44.63%.
