WST Overview

Clean, safe drinking water is something that many Americans take for granted. Unfortunately, the possibility of intentional (chemical/biological terrorism) or accidental contamination to our water distribution systems is a growing threat. The software tools in WST aid in contaminant detection, source identification and decision making for remediation and recovery. These tools include:

  • Hydraulic and water quality simulation
  • Public health and network impact assessment
  • Sensor placement optimization
  • Flushing optimization
  • Booster optimization
  • Manual sampling optimization
  • Source inversion
