The present study of ‘Analysis of Continuous Water Distribution System in Surat City using EPANET software: A Case study’ was carried out with a specific objective of effective planning, development of water distribution network and analysis using EPANET software. For this analysis the data for existing water distribution network was acquired from Surat Municipal Corporation and Multimedia Consultancy, Ahmedabad. The Google Earth Image of Surat City is downloaded and the elevation of node, length of pipe was recorded for nearly 214 junctions and 293 pipes. These data was used in EPANET software for analysis of pressure, head loss and elevation. This analysis resulted in pressure and elevation at various nodes and head loss at various pipes. Result of data analysis in software are compared with the actual data which will indicate that there is less head loss which is very essential for continuous pressure required for continuous water supply system in Surat City.
