Drinking water quality guidelines are becoming increasingly stringent. To comply with these guidelines and to manage water quality in a distribution system, improved understanding of the movement and fate of drinking water constituents within the system is required. This study illustrates the construction and calibration of an electronic model of the Townsville drinking water distribution system. Being in the tropics, the temperature of the water in the distribution system changes little throughout the year (usually between 20 and 25°C); also, water is supplied to the system from two sources, the location of the blending of these waters is varies with demand.
