The water network of a city needs to fulfill the demand in water consumption points in high quality. To minimize costs, the water network should be optimally structured, i.e. the pipes, pumps and containers must be correctly dimensioned and offer enough capacity (but not too much). The operation incl. cleaning and pumping should be designed costs minimized orientated on consumption forecasts. At the DS & OR Lab, we develop new, mostly non-linear models and solutions for a variety of optimization tasks in water management.
