How better weather forecasting can help stretch water supplies
Reservoir managers look to storm predictions to make smarter choices about dam operations Last year, New York City faced an unusual situation.

Early warning system to forecast maximum temperature in drinking water distribution systems
Climate change poses new challenges in preventing the exceedance of the maximum allowed temperature in the drinking water distribution system (DWDS). The objective of this article is to evaluate the feasibility of forecasting the maximum temperature in the DWDS. Two options were analysed: (1) using the records of the last day as forecast for the coming 2 days and (2) using 2-day weather forecast data. The maximum water temperature in the DWDS was modelled for a Dutch city for a warm period during summer 2006....
