A new set of local performance indices has recently been introduced within a mathematical framework specifically designed to promote a local–global analysis of water networks. Successively, some local indices were also set up and implemented on WaterNetGen to better exploit their potential. In this paper, after a very brief overview of tools and main notations, Santarém's (Portugal) water distribution network (WDN) is examined, applying to it the mentioned set of local indices, as a new real
