Abstract

Nowadays, issues related water are considered one of the most significant and vital problems in human societies. One of the fundamental branches of the water crisis is the distribution network-related problems. The present study attempted to extract, classify and verify the failure data obtained from the Preventive Maintenance database of Birjand Water Distribution Network (WDN). The WDN was meshed in terms of the rate of failures using a combination of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and EPANET 2. Then it was assessed by using the descriptive statistical analysis method. Investigations revealed that the middle sections of WDN involved the highest rate of failures. Furthermore, the investigations demonstrated that from 2011 to 2016 the highest rate of failures per kilometer per year ranged in range of 0.6 to 1.8 which involved the highest aggregation for all cells. In this regard, the highest intensity aggregation of occurrence rate in 2011 was estimated as 1.4 to 1.8, while in 2012, 2013, and 2016 it was estimated as 1-1.4 and finally in 2014 and 2015, estimations showed an interval of 0.6-1.
