The basic challenges faced by MidVaal Water Company were to determine the current status of the very old existing reticulation network in terms of flow rates, flow distribution, pressure drops and the integrated effect on pump performance in pumping stations when there is multiple end-user demand during peak and off-peak periods.  Another challenge was to propose changes that could be implemented successfully in the network to reach optimal operation of pump stations during many different end-user and pipeline maintenance scenarios.
