This study focuses on the optimization of sensor placement with respect to the source identification and event detection. A multi-objective algorithm is used to solve the optimization problem. The numbers of possible source nodes for contamination events associated with the solutions on the Pareto fronts from the proposed method and benchmark method are calculated under the same configuration and compared. The comparison showed that the proposed method performs better than the benchmark method in detecting a contamination event and identifying its possible source.
