Water Distribution in Metro Vancouver
Metro Vancouver has an ever rapidly growing population, this combined with severe summer droughts that are increasing in frequency give rise to the need for radical change in Metro Vancouver’s water distribution systems. In this project, these systems are examined, various network models are looked at in detail and various potential solutions are provided in order to help improve the current state of Metro Vancouver’s water systems. The main goal of this examination it to minimize the need to acquire water from expensive sources and attempt to maximize the coverage of current water sources across Metro Vancouver. Four different models are constructed for this task as well as three different potential networks for Metro Vancouver.
