This chapter develops a methodology for computing reliability parameters that takes into consideration randomness. This methodology requires the failure rates and repair rates of the pumps, the tanks, and the connecting pipes; rates of current demand level increasing to or decreasing to another demand level; and the average time lengths of different demand levels. The methodology computes quantitatively the reliability parameters for the supply represented by the pumping station and demand. Subjects covered include frequency and duration analysis of pumping stations, demand and pumping station storage, and reliability analysis.
