AbstractThis paper reports the development of a prototype computer application called WARP (Water Mains Renewal Planner) that models the deterioration rates of water mains. WARP is a decision support tool that can be used for planning repairs and replacements. It considers time-dependent factors such as temperature (in the form of freezing index), soil moisture (in the form of rainfall deficit), main replacement rates and cathodic protection (CP) strategies, including hotspot CP as well as systematic retrofit CP. It accounts for non-time-dependent (or static) factors such as pipe characteristics and soil type through water main grouping.
