Abstract

Few municipal water delivery systems are truly optimized to deliver a quantity of water at the least cost. Both the University of Kentucky and Memphis State University have attempted to implement optimum control strategies for several water utilities and have found that many unexpected benefits and problems can occur during and after the implementation of such a control program. Sometimes these findings are non-quantifiable but more important than the actual savings of the new pumping strategy. This paper details some of these unplanned for benefits and problems from the authors' experience.
