Abstract
In some cities, concerns over the sustainability of the water distribution system have led to different strategies to cope with the demand in terms of quantity and quality. The Barcelona Metropolitan Area drinking water distribution system is supplied with water from different sources (two rivers, the Mediterranean Sea and groundwater) and is treated with different technologies (classical chlorination, membrane filtering, etc.). Different blending processes occur along the network to homogenize ...
