CCWI2017: F96 'Augmented Resilience of Water Distribution Systems following Severe Abnormal Events'

The detection of faults and the capacity to return quickly to a normal state after failures and interruption of services are essential for water utilities. The ResiWater project aims to improve the following three aspects for better network security and enhanced resilience: prevention, surveillance and response of water distribution systems facing the major threats. In this paper, we present the ResiWater project main results after two years. A focus is made on the resilience framework and the development of high-performance sensors for fast detection of water quality deterioration or system breakdown.
