The paper reviews the use of models for predicting water quality in distribution systems. Results of an extensive field study conducted by the USEPA and North Penn Water Authority are examined. A case study of the model application to a waterborne disease outbreak in Cabool, Missouri is presented. The application and extension of the model to the South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority (SCCRWA) is discussed. It may be concluded that models can be used to predict water quality changes and human exposure in drinking water distribution systems. Based on field studies, water quality can vary widely over a short time in a given place. Tank operations can have a significant impact on water quality. As standards become more stringent system design have had to be reconsidered in order to meet water quality objectives.
