Location Allocation and Water Demand

Hi everyone,

I'm doing a project involving water treatment facilities. The goal is to increase the supply of recycled water to various parcels which I have represented as centroids. I put my roads, facilities, and centroids into a network dataset for analysis. The facilities have a water capacity assigned to them and the centroids have a water demand assigned to them.

I want to create a route from the facilities to the centroids to meet the water demands, but not exceed the water capacity of the facilities. I'm thinking I need to set the capacity as an impedance (almost like a cost), but I'm unsure how to do that.

Any tips/advice would be much appreciated
Thank you
