Mathematical modelling of the water supply systems (WSS) and water quality changes in the system is a complex and difficult task to solve, it requires an interdisciplinary approach to considering the determinants of WSS work. Prognosis models of the WSS in relation to hydraulic quantities are well known and there are many packages that implement these models. These packages allow you to calculate the flow and pressure in the water distribution system under certain operating conditions. However, to make a hydraulic model a useful tool in the management of water supply systems, a calibration process is required. This process involves estimating model parameters to minimize the difference between model results and actual observations. This is a complex and multi-stage process where the network graph and parameters such as roughness coefficient, pump characteristics, or nodal demands are checked and corrected. The following work contains a complex process of calibration of the actual WSS that supplies water to the customers of the selected part of the Silesian agglomeration.
