Measure: WaterNetworkInterventionsForWaterSupplyRecovery


There are many events that potentially may lead to anomalies affecting the physical elements of the water network (i.e. pipe breakdown). When this occurs, a segment of the network containing the faulty element is isolated for its repair. This isolation may affect the supply of certain demand nodes in terms of quantity and pressure. Then, a set of network interventions must be enabled in order to recover the water supply service in the affected area during this emergency period. In general, this interventions aims to enable new water pathways to the affected area and/or adapting PRVs and pumping strategies to recover pressure assuring enough autonomy in the water tanks.
