Description:

Cyprus is facing a growing water shortage problem, therefore water losses associated with inefficiencies of the underground water distribution system are not only causing revenue losses for the local water boards but also significantly negatively affect the national water reserves. This paper presents an outline of two research projects, related to each other, “WATERSENSE” and “URBAN WATER DISTRIBUTION MODELLING, SIMULATION AND OPTIMIZATION OF LEAKAGE DETECTION VIA SENSING TECHNOLOGIES” (UWDM). These projects aim the
development of an integrated management system for water distribution networks that combines analytical and neurofuzzy decision support systems, geographical information systems and wireless sensor networks. The methodology focuses on the sustainable management of water pipe networks through real-time data acquisition and processing of sensor signals collected from a distributed adhoc wireless sensor network. The report is based upon works partially supported by the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation (under Grant No. PLYPH/0506/21 and Grant No. PENEK/0308/36).
