A performance based approach for the analysis of urban water distribution systems under drought conditions

Risultato della ricerca: Chapter

Abstract

The present study proposes some performance indicators for analysing urban water distribution system characterised by intermittent supply service. Specific indicators have been proposed for investigating the reduction of quality of water service under resources scarcity conditions. A modelling procedure has been implemented in order to allow for analysing complex network schemes in which users self adapt to scarcity conditions. The procedure has been applied to analyse the performance of an existing supply system in Palermo (Italy). The network and users’ behaviour in intermittent distribution conditions have been monitored in order to calibrate the model and verify the reliability of the proposed methodology. The approach allowed for evaluating the impact of water scarcity events on population thus suggesting actions for improving resources distribution equity.
