Impact/Purpose:

Recently, extensive focus has been placed on determining the optimal locations of sensors within a distribution system to minimize the impact on public health from intentional intrusion events. Modified versions of these tools may have additional benefits for determining monitoring locations for other more common objectives associated with distribution systems. A modified Sensor Placement Optimization Tool (SPOT) is presented that can be used for satisfying more generic location problems such as determining monitoring locations for tracer tests or disinfectant byproduct sampling. The utility for the modified SPOT algorithm is discussed with respect to implementing a distribution system field-scale tracer study.
