This paper describes the implementation of a real-time hydraulic model of a water distribution system in Singapore. This on-line system is based on the Integration of real-time hydraulic data with hydraulic computer simulation models and statistical prediction tools. To facilitate this implementation, a network of wireless sensor nodes continuously sample hydraulic data such as pressure and flow rate, transmitting it to cloud-based servers for processing and archiving. Then, data streams from the sensor nodes are integrated into an on-line hydraulic modeling subsystem that is responsible for on-line estimation and prediction of the water distribution system's hydraulic state for a rolling planning horizon of 24 hours ahead. This online hydraulic model is one of the components of the WaterWiSe (Wierless Water Sentinel) platform which is an end-to-end integrated hardware and software system for monitoring, analyzing, and modeling urban water distribution systems in real-time.
