Consider the Value of Hydraulic Modeling for Operators

Authors: Huang, M.

Opflow Journal, July 2019

It’s important for operators to know how hydraulic models can be used and to provide input for model development. Nowadays, most mid- to large- size utilities, as well as many small utilities, have developed a hydraulic model of their water distribution systems at some point in time. These models are typically only available to a few individuals with the knowledge and ability to use them, but they’re useful tools for operations and engineering staff. This article analyzes the development and uses of a hydraulic model.
