    A mathematical model for optimal real‐time operation of a regional water system was developed and examined. The regional system consists of numerous water sources with various water qualities and a variety of consumers with different flow and quality requirements. In order to satisfy the different consumer constraints, nodal flow and solute balances were defined. Pump and valve‐on and valve‐off situations were defined by continuous nonlinear equations. The model was solved numerically for a short time period by a projected Lagrangian method for the water supply system in the Arava Rift Valley, Israel. The global uniqueness of optimal solution was proven
