Water Infrastructure Modeling Tools
- Water Security Toolkit The toolkit includes hydraulic and water quality modeling software and optimization methodologies to identify: (1) sensor locations to detect contamination, (2) locations in the network in which the contamination was introduced, (3) hydrants to remove contaminated water from the distribution system, (4) locations in the network to inject decontamination agents to inactivate, remove or destroy contaminants, (5) locations in the network to take grab sample to confirm contamination or cleanup and (6) valves to close in order to isolate contaminated areas of the network.
- EPANET-RTX Open Source Libraries
- CANARY for contamination event detection - CANARY takes standard water quality data and uses statistical and mathematical algorithms to identify the onset of periods of anomalous water quality with an alarm or an alert, while at the same time, limiting the number of false alarm.
- EPANET-MSX to model complex reactions in water distribution systems - EPANET is used to model contamination threats to water systems. Historically, EPANET was limited to tracking the dynamics of a single chemical transported through a network of pipes and storage tanks. The extension to EPANET called EPANET-MSX (Multi-Species eXtension) allows for the consideration of multiple interacting chemicals in the bulk flow and on the pipe walls.
- TEVA-SPOT graphical user interface for optimal placement of water quality sensors - TEVA-SPOT is used by water utilities to optimize the number and location of contamination detection sensors so that economic and/or public health consequences are minimized. The graphical user interface allows for user friendly interactions.
