Oslo Case Study Report
TRUST (TRansitions to the Urban Water Services of Tomorrow) Project
The report presents the WaterMet2Oslo model, built based on the urban water system of Oslo which faces water scarcity problems for a 30-year planning horizon starting from year-2011. In order to cope with these challenges, 28 intervention strategies, each of which comprises either simple or complex intervention options are defined. They are examined and compared with each other in three stages against some quantitative criteria quantified by the WaterMet2 model. The quantitative criteria include water supply reliability, average annual leakage, total capital cost, average annual cost and average annual GHG emissions; and the qualitative criteria are health risks, social acceptance and company acceptance. All the intervention strategies are finally ranked by using the Compromising Programming MCDA method. Two types of rankings are performed including one with quantitative criteria only and the other one with both quantitative and qualitative criteria. The ranking of the results shows some potential and promising strategies. However they cannot be fully trusted currently for any real decision-making without further development and validation for multiple future scenarios and risk type criteria.
