The Battle of Background Leakage Assessment for Water Networks (BBLAWN) is the fifth in a series of "Battle Competitions" dating back to the Battle of the Water Networks (BWN) in 1985 and, more recently, the Battle of the Water Sensor Networks (BWSN) in 2006; the Battle of the Water Calibration Networks (BWCN) in 2010 and the Battle of the Water Networks Design (BWN-II) in 2012. The BBLAWN asks for a design methodology for reducing water losses due to background leakages in a real water distribution system. The results have been presented at a special session of the 16th Water Distribution Systems Analysis Conference, held in Bari, Italy in July 2014, where 14 teams from academia, research centers and companies presented their solutions to the problem in hand.
