A methodology is developed to optimize the design of water distribution networks using reduced gradient techniques with a network simulator. The problem is reduced in complexity by incorporating a network simulator into the optimization model. This allows a more general problem to be solved including pipe sizing for new and expanding systems, pump sizing, valves, and storage facilities. In addition, the reduced problem can consider large networks under a number of loading conditions.
