Abstract

In water distribution systems, chlorine is widely used as a disinfectant to prevent microbial growth. Many factors inherent in the daily operation of these distribution systems can lead to chlorine decay within the system to a point where minimum residuals are not realized at the point of withdrawal. An optimization model is developed in conjunction with EPANET, a dynamic water quality simulation model, to determine optimal disinfectant booster locations and their injection rates.
