NIEVES, Juan Carlos; GARCIA-GASULLA, Dario; AULINAS, Montse  and  CORTES, Ulises. An Operational Approach for Implementing Normative Agents in Urban Wastewater Systems. Comp. y Sist. [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.1, pp.27-42. ISSN 1405-5546.

Water quality management policies on a river basin scale are of special importance in order to prevent and/or reduce environmental pollution caused by human sources. Industrial effluents are a priority issue particularly in Urban Wastewater Systems (UWS) that receive mixed household and industrial wastewaters, apart from rainfall water. In this paper, we present an analysis and implementation of normative agents that capture concrete regulations of the Catalan pollution-prevention policies. The implementation of the normative agents is based on Situation Calculus.

Keywords : Rational agents; environmental decision support systems; practical normative reasoning; situation calculus.
