The aim of the present research is the development of innovative sensors for the real-time monitoring of water quality, to be coupled to simulation models of both operation units and distribution networks, for the optimization of the water resource management. In detail, the focus of the research is both drinking water treatment and agricultural reuse of reclaimed effluents. An approach integrating monitoring and process analysis will be defined, based on advanced analytical, experimental and modelling techniques. Processes will be described by deterministic or stochastic models, using the developed sensors to calibrate parameters and to validate outputs with reference to specific cases of study.
