Abstract

In the last two decades by the growth of computer industry, the methods of collecting, processing and storage of information and statistics used to show and simulate the future status which is important and essential in the management of water distribution systems. Nowadays, water distribution systems analysis methods as an impressive technique introducing hydraulic behavior concept, development and operation designs assessment, and generally overcoming lack of information have been accepted. This article is to discuss about the factors causing low quality of water in water distribution systems and most of the factors considered are in the aspects regarding to hydraulic oscillation, quality (water age), maintenance management of distribution systems with consumption pattern, long-line networks and water supply sources problems in a certain area, as well as problems arisen from either quality or quantity or GIS services. Besides, relevant tools to reduce such problems are discussed.
