Use of assumption that amount of water actually withdrawn along line is withdrawn as single quantity at end of line; errors in computation resulting from such assumptions; two alternate methods are proposed; first method is applicable only to dead-end systems, or other situations where flows are known, second method is applicable to either dead end or loop system, and flows need not be known in advance.
