BATTLE OF WATER NETWORKS SUBMISSION CLOSED

PARTICIPATE IN SURVEY SCORE

The Battle of Water Networks District Meter Areas (BWNDMA) is the sixth Battle Competition since the beginning of the Water Distribution Systems Analysis Conference. The first one, known as Battle of Water Networks (BWN) was developed in 1985. Subsequent Battles included the Battle of the Water Sensor Networks (BWSN) in 2006, the Battle of the Calibration Networks (BWCN) in 2010, the Battle of the Water Networks Design (BWN-II) in 2012 and the Battle of Background Leakage Assessment for Water Networks (BBLAWN) in 2014.

The BWNDMA invites either individuals or teams from academia, utilities, and consulting firms to propose a solution for the operation of a real water distribution system.

The results of the BWNDMA will be presented at a special session on 28 of July of the upcoming 18th Water Distribution Systems Analysis Conference in Cartagena, Colombia in July 2016.
