Purpose/Objective:

The Water Network Tool for Resilience (WNTR, pronounced winter) is a Python package designed to simulate and analyze resilience of water distribution networks. Here, a network refers to the collection of pipes, pumps, nodes, and valves that make up a water distribution system. WNTR has an application programming interface (API) that is fexible and allows for changes to the network structure and operations, along with simulation of disruptive incidents and recovery actions. WNTR provides a fexible platform for modeling a wide range of disruptive incidentsand repair strategies,and pressure dependent demandhydraulic simulationis includedto model the system during low pressure conditions. WNTR can be installed through the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) GitHub organization at https://github.com/USEPA/WNTR.
