Abstract: Water distribution systems in many older cities of the United States need rehabilitation. Because the rehabilitation costs of the nation's water systems will involve billions of dollars, it is very important that proper consideration be given to developing cost-effective rehabilitation plans. To develop these rehabilitation plans, a systematic monitoring and assessment of water distribution systems and computer models will be needed. Development and use of computerized management information systems for distribution systems will be highly cost effective in making improved main replacement decisions. By analyzing the existing distribution system data, it is possible to significantly improve the overall distribution management.
