Managing water distribution networks can be tricky, especially those built in the 19th century. With access difficult, it's often not possible to install sensors at all points of the network. However, as John Brooke from the University of Manchester explains, grid computing can play an important role in predicting waterflow in areas of the network lacking sensors, thus aiding important decision making.
