g) The Adjustment Factor value calculated in Table 19
is then multiplied by each of the selected Water Use Components
to derive new estimates. These new values are reinserted in the
process (Table 20) and retotaled. At this point, the totals
should match, and all values should be checked to ensure they are
complete and reasonable.
The water components that are adjusted by Steps (f) and
(g) should be those with the lowest level of confidence and,
therefore, the greatest possible variance from actual use. In
most cases, these will be the estimates for ships and losses.
h) The final step is the adjustment of the individual
building and ship estimates within each water use component used
to derive the adjustment factor. Tables 21 and 22 show a sample
adjustment for buildings and ships. In each case, the adjustment
factor is applied to each of the individual building groups or
ship classes/names to proportionally distribute the difference
calculated in Table 19. The new total values in Tables 21, 22,
and 23 should match the adjusted component values in Table 21.
Costs due to maintenance and losses are normally distributed
among all tenant activities based on individual tenant water use.
