Doing More with Less! Lessons Learned in Water-Distribution-Systems Modelling
June 8, 2022 — 2:30-3:45 p.m.
Water-distribution-network modelling is the most effective way of predicting system behaviour to help solve a variety of hydraulic capacity, operational, and water-quality problems. Recent improvements in data collection and modelling software have led to further benefits of water modelling. Access to real-time water demand and diurnal pattern estimations enables water utilities to go beyond metering and billing to true intelligent water modelling and management. In this presentation, Dr. Werner de Schaetzen, P.Eng., outlines 10 lessons learned of building and calibrating detailed hydraulic and water-quality models and describes the accomplishments and benefits of hydraulic and water-quality models.
