Résumé

This paper presents the results obtained from the application of an “integrated approach”-which combines the use of water quality, system operation and maintenance data, hydraulic model and geographical information systems - to identify the main causes of different types of water quality variations in the Moncton (New-Brunswick, Canada) distribution system (DS) between January 2000 and September 2001. Results related to the investigation of 11 positive total coliform samples and 13 heterotrophic plate count (HPC) events (with measured concentrations higher than usual) are presented. DS operations such as the installation of new mains, cleaning of existing mains and unidirectional flushing were found to be related to some of the water quality variations studied.
