Abstract -
Water treatment and distribution is undoubtedly of high priority to ensure that communities could gain access to safe and affordable drinking water. Therefore the distribution network should be designed systematically. We propose a nonlinear stochastic optimization model for tackling this problem under the consideration of reliability in water flows. The nonlinearities arise through pressure drop equation. We adopt sampling and integer programming based approch for solving the model. A direct search algorithm is used to solve the integer part.
