A water supply network or water supply system is a system of engineered hydrologic and hydraulic components which provide water supply.A water supply system typically includes: A drainage basin (see water purification - sources of drinking water).; A raw water collection point (above or below ground) where the water accumulates, such as a lake, a river, or groundwater from an underground aquifer. Water infrastructure systems are essential for sustaining societal quality of life. However, they face a variety of challenges and potential threats to sustained performance, including ageing, deterioration, underfunding, disruptive events, and population growth, among others. Infrastructure Asset Management can contribute significantly to address those challenges and sustain. Water infrastructure systems are essential for sustaining societal quality of life.

As required by statute, EPA conducts surveys of national drinking water and clean water infrastructure needs. The results of these surveys are reported to Congress and track known infrastructure needs through time. Clean Watersheds Needs Survey; Drinking Water Needs Survey and Assessment. Water infrastructure is a broad term for systems of water supply, treatment, storage, water resource management, flood prevention and hydropower. The term also includes water based transportation systems such as canals. The following are common types of water infrastructure. Infrastructure Needs. The Water Infrastructure Network (WIN) is a group of wastewater and drinking-water service providers, elected governmental officials, state health and environmental administrators, environmentalists, and engineers dedicated to protecting and preserving the drinking-water infrastructure and wastewater infrastructure within the United States. American Water Works Association is an international non-profit, scientific and educational association founded to improve water quality and supply. Established in , it has a membership of around 50, members worldwide.
