Abstract: Raw-water supply systems are characterised by high complexity and large-scale nature, since they are typically composed of a variety of interconnected hydraulic works. The optimal management and operation of such systems is undoubtedly a key priority, and at the same time, a challenge, for any water utility. In the era of digital transformation, the development of standardized and interoperable solutions that allow seamless integration of tools and models (usually developed by different providers), along with the existing network of sensors (usually installed by different vendors), is of paramount importance towards a holistic and integrated management of such complex systems. In this work, we showcase a first attempt to develop such an interoperable digital solution for the management of the external raw-water system that serves the city of Athens (Greece). Specifically, we build around FIWARE, a standardization framework supported by the European Connecting Europe Facility, to develop a FIWARE-enabled web platform that integrates a great number of flow and quality sensors, and supports system operators in decision making via innovative models and analytics.
