Advances in Water Supply Management
Proceedings of the CCWI '03 Conference, London, 15-17 September 2003
This collection of papers is aimed at both the research community and the professional involved with water supply systems within the context of integrated urban water systems as a whole. Based on both field expertise and research results, this book offers a range of innovative techniques such as diagnostics, demand management, uncertainty analysis and transients models, alongside more traditional methods such as optimisation and network analysis, designed to enable the practitioner to devise the most sustainable and cost-effective solutions. Topics discussed include data management; management and detection of leakage; analysis, design and rehabilitation of distribution networks; water quality management; effectiveness of water conservation; water economics; consumption trends and demand forecast; specific country experiences with demand management.
