The Water Distribution Utility Network Foundation configures a utility network to behave in the same way as a water distribution system in the real world. The Water Distribution Utility Network Foundation includes the following:
- Configuration instructions
- Schema for common components of a water distribution system
- A map to publish the utility network service
- Foundational maps and apps for a water utility network
- Workflow examples
- Sample data
It is important to understand that the Water Distribution Utility Network Foundation is a starting place to implement a utility network for water distribution. It is designed to provide a baseline configuration and is not designed to be an all-inclusive data model that contains every asset or supports every workflow that a water distribution system may have. The baseline is intended to be extended to meet any additional asset, workflow, or third-party system integration needs. The baseline itself should not be modified. Certain modifications to the baseline schema and maps can result in undesired network behavior.
