Water Network Tool for Resilience Webinar Archive

On September 16, 2020, EPA ORD hosted this webinar on the Water Network Tool for Resilience (WNTR). WNTR is an EPANET compatible, open source Python package allowing for end-to-end evaluation of drinking water infrastructure resilience to disasters. The software improves upon EPANET's capabilities by fully integrating hydraulic and water quality simulation, damage estimates and response actions, and resilience metrics into a single platform. Presented by Terra Haxton, Engineer in the Center of Environmental Solutions and Emergency Response, this webinar provides an overview of WNTR along with a few case study applications.
