AbstractContaminant intrusion in water mains is a serious public health risk. This paper presents a soft computing model for quantifying the risk of contaminant intrusion. The model uses a directed acyclic cognitive map, where causal relationships are established using fuzzy rule-based modeling. The fuzzy rules are defined based on expert judgments and beliefs. A hypothetical example is used to demonstrate the proposed model.
