Many reasons have been identified as contributing to or causing high level of non-revenue water such as poor organizational structures in the responsible agency, insufficient funds, poor water network implementation and low profile of actions addressing optimization of services including leakage control, inadequate tariff and collection systems. This paper describes a simulation system that was developed to predict the supply and demand of treated water as well as non revenue water source and magnitude for a case study of a public treated water distribution system. The system can also be used in assisting the management of the water department in simulating future development such as demand and new construction of water distribution. In conclusion, the developed system has increased the knowledge of the distribution system and understanding of consumption patterns and non revenue water zones, which has allowed the water authority to optimize its distribution system.
