San Juan, Puerto Rico


Sponsored by the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority, this project provides a hydraulic model for the expansion and optimization of water to the Rio Prieto region in the southwest of Puerto Rico. The technical and social-economic-political aspects of the expansion were examined through interviews, site visits, mapping and digitizing infrastructure, and determining population demand. Upon analysis of the hydraulic model, population predictions, and supply and demand data, the project team provided recommendations in order to aid in the expansion of the water distribution network.
