Evolutionary optimisation algorithms (EAs) and other types of metaheuristics have been used extensively in water resources for a variety of purposes (e.g. model calibration, the planning, design and operation of water resources systems etc.) in many different application areas (e.g. groundwater, water supply systems, treatment etc.) over the last few decades. During this time, the popularity of these algorithms has increased dramatically, to the point where they are now the most commonly used optimisation approach for solving water resources problems in the research literature.
