The EPANET desktop application, along with its library and source-code, have played invaluable roles in research, management and business of water distribution systems, for more than 20 years. The visionary role of the US EPA in developing EPANET and placing the program and source code in the public domain, is widely acknowledged within the water research community. The work reported here summarizes the progress and the results in setting up the organizational framework for the software as an Open Source Project. Since the project announcement progress was made in several domains: 1) bugs were reported and fixed by the EPANET open-source community 2) new functions were added to allow developers to retrieve and modify simulation and network data 3) efficiency issues were addressed 4) the foundation for the project's documentation were established 5) compilation routine for different platform were added and 6) prototype testing routines were developed.
