Urban Water II is the proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on the Design, Construction, Maintenance, Monitoring and Control of Urban Water Systems. The meeting was reconvened following the success of the first conference held in the New Forest, home to the Wessex Institute of Technology in 2012. Water systems in the urban environment consist of supply networks as well as sewage and storm drainage systems. They interact with each other and with warm bodies such as rivers, lakes and aquifers, and this interaction affects the quality and quantity of the different systems. As our cities continue to expand, their urban infrastructure must be re-evaluated and adapted to new requirements related to the increase in population and the growing areas under urbanisation. New water systems are also required to reduce the risk associated with floods, network failures and many others related to inadequate networks. New systems should reduce economic losses and environmental impacts as well as promote a higher degree of reliability. Improved management, measurement and control mechanisms are needed to ensure the efficiency and safety of urban water systems. Topics such as contamination and pollution discharges in urban water bodies, as well as the monitoring of water recycling systems are currently receiving a great deal of attention from researchers and professional engineers working in the water industry. Architects and town planners are also aware of the importance of the interaction between urban water cycles and city planning and landscaping. Management of all these aspects requires the development of specialised computer tools that can respond to the increased complexity of urban water systems. Relating to the subject areas of Water supply networks and Urban Drainage, topics covered include: Leakage and losses; Modelling and experimentation; Safety and security of water systems; Maintenance and repairs; Water quality; Water savings and reuse; Surface water and groundwater sources; Reservoirs; Network design; Waste water treatment and disposal; Structural works and infrastructure; Water quality issues; Combined sewer networks; Flood control; Storage tanks; Environmental impact; Domestic and industrial waste water issues.However, for the observed data, with 1 / , storage capacity results empty at the beginning of a new runoff and the simplifying assumption of considering only a couple of rainfall events can be ...
