This paper presents an application of Artificial Neural Network models (ANN) to predict the water consumption at two scales: i) District Metered Area (DMA) located in the Scientific Campus of Lille University and ii) End user representing a restaurant inside this DMA. Data are collected from Automated Meter Readers (AMRs) that measure in near real-time the water consumption. The models are trained at both daily and hourly time intervals using historical values and the variation between the hour and the type of days. The paper shows that the ANN-based models can well predict the water consumption including peak values.
