Themes and Topics
Several emerging areas associated with water distribution will be underscored:

  • WDS as a microbiological system
  • Water security
  • Sustainable WDS design/operation using
  • the triple bottom line/ Water reuse/dual distribution networks design

Further, a unique holistic perspective of contaminant intrusions including detection, source identification, and response will be highlighted through a series of sessions. We intend to bring together engineers and modelers with sensor developers and utilities to provide better understandings of the issues, needs and
capabilities that can be used to protect consumers. In addition to the theme areas, additional conference themes are listed below.

See conference website for session topics.

  • WDS as a microbiological system
  • Contaminant intrusion and water security
  • Sustainable WDSs
  • Network Models
  • Network Vulnerability
  • Network Hydraulics
  • Water Use
  • Network Water Quality
  • Leakage
  • Field Work
  • Asset Management
  • Mixing and dispersion
