Part of: Computerized Decision Support Systems for Water Managers


The Thames Water Authority has developed an integrated strategy for providing water supplies to London into the 21st Century. At the core of this strategy is the construction of over 60 km of deep tunnel (the London Water Ring Main) to convey water to the Capital's major demand centers. The Ring Main will radically alter the way in which water is supplied to London and a new approach is required for management and control of the system. This report describes an implementation plan for control of the London's future water supply system and outlines the decision support tools needed for the new initiative.
