The problem of forecasting consumer water demands over a 24 hour period is formulated within the framework of an on-line computer based pump scheduling scheme for optimum operational control of a water supply network. Two well known forecasting techniques are considered and compared, in terms of accuracy and computational feasibility, using real data from a network in the United Kingdom.
