Abstract: The cost of Pumping comprises a major part of total water operation and maintenance expenses. Most utilities attempt to keep these costs down. However, there are areas of study that may help to additionally reduce water delivery costs. For example, the optimal time to clean water mains, the optimal system pressure over time, etc. This particular investigation emphasizes determining the optimal pumping schedule for a well field. The objective is to produce a unit volume of water at minimum cost.
