Quantifies the projected benefits of an Energy and Water Quality Management System (EWQMS) at a major water utility. Reports on designing, modeling, implementing, measuring results from, and documenting the Operations Planner and Scheduler (OPS) function modeled in previous EWQMS phases. Develops site-specific specifications of OPS software, with a requirement that the system could be operational within six months and yield positive return on investment within one year. Documents performance of OPS software following installation and start-up. Tailored Collaboration partner: Colorado Springs Utilities. Published in 2003.
