Abstract: Abstract: Under the Facilities Engineering Applications Program, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers wanted to test the capability of the EPANET computer model for evaluating water quality in water distribution systems. Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, has experienced low chlorine residuals levels. The EPANET model was calibrated using hydrant flow tests to predict chlorine die-off in the distribution system at the Fort. The model was then used to compare the effects of flushing and chlorine addition to improve water quality. Because of the high chlorine die-off rates in warm weather, it appears that chlorine addition is the only way to significantly improve chlorine residuals during summer months.
