Abstract

This study investigates the effects of considering an advanced water quality simulation model for finding the optimal layout and operation of a booster chlorination system. Previous studies have generally relied on EPANET, an advection-based water quality model, to simulate the transport and decay of disinfectant residuals. In this study, an advection-dispersion-reaction (ADR) transport model that considers the spatial distribution of flow demands along the dead-end pipe is considered instead. The results suggest that optimization results generated by EPANET may not produce a booster chlorination system that adequately maintains the minimum residual concentration in the periphery pipes of a real-life water distribution system.
