Capacity expansion and necessary capital improvements to meet the water supply demand for years 1990-2020 for the U. S. Route 1 corridor development from South Brunswick to Princeton, New Jersey is under investigation in this study. A simulation model based on maximum day has been used to identify the weak area (low pressure and flow) within Phase 1. After identification of the main weak areas various improvements will be proposed and the simulation model has been rerun in order to reach the minimum pressure requirements. Finally, recommendations will be given to determine the cost and sequence of recommended expansions and improvements based on real time financial restraints.
