  Abstract:  Risk assessment in case of failure in the water supply system. The water supply system is subjected to different flows varying within very large limits, the nature of these flows running through the pipes and fittings of the system are great diversity. The different situations the system is submitted, cause a number of disturbances, which can turn into serious failures if they are amplified. By integrating graphic and alphanumeric data, the GIS turns into a computerised system for automatic elaboration of maps or diagrams, a general-purpose computerised graphic system, as well as a system that can store, process, combine and analyse data and information on the water systems, it can produce new added-value information. Thus, we can obtain information on the areas at risk of failure in the water supply system. After having carried out such interrogations and analysis and having presented the results to the decision-makers, more efficient planning and reduced planning costs can be achieved for the maintenance works, repairs and replacement in the water supply systems.
