[automatically translated] The water quality in the distribution networks can be significantly altered by a series of processes that develop both along the adduction system in the same distribution network. The reduction of the chlorine concentration, used for the disinfection of the water, can be considered an index of the progressive deterioration of the hygienic characteristics of the water circulating in the network. The concentration of the chlorine, free or combined, is closely linked to the reactions that develop inside the ducts. In this particular work focus is on the identification of the spatial diversity of the residual chlorine in the network. The analysis is conducted by referring to data collected in one of the subnets in the city of Palermo service. In order to reduce the large number of parameters of unknown quality, the above-mentioned spatial diversity is identified by means of the "cluster analysis". In particular, it is setting up a procedure of "clustering" based on Fuzzy Logic and is a detection criterion for the definition of the membership condition.
