The Water Security Toolkit (WST) assists in the evaluation of multiple response actions in order to select the most beneficial consequence management strategy. It includes hydraulic and water quality modeling software and optimization methodologies to identify: (1) sensor locations to detect contamination, (2) locations in the network in which the contamination was introduced, (3) hydrants to remove contaminated water from the distribution system, (4) locations in the network to inject decontamination agents to inactivate, remove, or destroy contaminants, (5) locations in the network to take grab samples to confirm contamination or cleanup, and (6) valves to close in order to isolate contaminated areas of the network. This user manual describes the different components of WST and how to use the software.
