Real-time Modeling using SCADA Data at Yorba Linda Water District
Track: Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater
Authors: Anthony Manzano, Erin Breen
Yorba Linda Water District (YLWD) uses an ArcGIS-based hydraulic model to analyze capacities, manage water transfer between pressure zones, track water age, ensure water source redundancies and adequate system pressures, and verify fire flow requirements. For this project, YLWD transitioned their current static model to real-time, using live SCADA data to update their hydraulic model (including boundary conditions, auto-developed diurnal curves, and flow patterns from pumps and control valves).
