Managing Distribution System Low Transient Pressures for Water Quality
Dr. Jian Zhang, PE, Ph.D.
Gauges the extent to which water utilities manage distribution system pressure to protect water quality. Determines if distribution system locations maintained at low pressure have poorer water quality than other distribution system locations. Determines the daily and annual risk of infection caused by temporary low pressure. Also recommends best management practices for distribution system locations that may experience low pressure.
