dc.description.abstractSmall rural drinking water systems in Alberta face financial challenges when supplying potable water via traditional pressurized distribution system. In many rural settings, the costs can be reduced by employing an innovative solution of distributing and delivering water via low-pressure water supply system, often called trickle fill system. This research develops a modelling approach to design the trickle fill system in Rockyview County, Alberta and investigates into EPAnet software application suggested by US Environmental Protection Agency to study and analyze system hydraulics, water quality, and energy profile. The conducted research concludes the trickle fill system design cannot be performed by EPAnet alone and suggests modeling software applications suitable for rural water development to be used in combination with EPAnet software. The study proposes options for energy optimization for Rockyview County and finds that trickle fill system implementation is the most suitable option.
