Sandia National Laboratories, in collaboration with the United States Environmental Protection Agency, has a long history developing open source software tools for water distribution systems analysis. These tools include CANARY, TEVA-Sensor Placement Optimization Tool (SPOT), the Water Security Toolkit (WST), and the Water Network Tool for Resilience (WNTR). These tools are used by consultants, utilities and researchers to monitor, analyze, and optimize water distribution systems. Recently, Sandia has released open source Python packages that compliment these tools. These tools include Pecos, designed to monitor performance of time series data and Chama, designed for sensor placement optimization. While the functionality of the new software packages is similar to previous tools, the use of Python packages facilitates greater flexibility, easier analysis, and integration with a wide range of open source software. WNTR also follows this software design. The Python packages are compatible with Pyomo, another Sandia developed Python package, which includes a diverse set of optimization capabilities. This presentation will include a brief overview of each Python package, examples of how the tools can be used together, discussion on software development practices, future development and ways to contribute to the open source software.

Sandia National Laboratories is a multimission laboratory managed and operated by National Technology and Engineering Solutions of Sandia, LLC., a wholly owned subsidiary of Honeywell International, Inc., for the U.S. Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration under contract DE-NA-0003525.
