Movement of water requires consideration of hydraulic design. Solutions include open channel and piped systems. Designing for the most efficient cross-section results in minimizing construction costs. Canal ancillary structures must also be optimized to minimize turbulence and associated energy loss.
The design of closed pipe systems, specifically selecting the pipe diameter, requires that the life-cycle cost of the system be optimized.
Pipes that are too large increase initial construction costs. Pipes that are too small waste energy over the life-cycle of the system.
Compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act also requires source water tracking and water age determination of network systems.
