Abstract: This paper presents the results of the transient analysis for the Calumet system, which is part of the Tunnel and Reservoir Plan (TARP) that is operated by the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRDGC). Three different scenarios were analyzed, which included two different simplifications of the system, two pressure wave celerities and two different conditions for the Thornton reservoir.
