Abstract: A two day workshop was held at Cornell on December 1-2, 1988 on serviceability analysis of water delivery systems. The major objectives of the workshop were (i) evaluation of methods for serviceability analysis of water delivery systems and (ii) development of rational strategies for design, operation and rehabilitation of these systems. Technical presentations were given by participants on the first day of the workshop. Participants also had the opportunity to use the Cornell interactive computer graphics for serviceability analysis of water delivery systems. The second day was spent on panel discussions and preparation of position papers on methods for serviceability analysis, design, operation and rehabilitation of water delivery systems. These position papers were reviewed by all participants and are included in the report. The report also contains abstracts of all technical presentations.
