Modeling Rural Networks and Piecemeal Water supply systems is tough because these systems are not fully Pressurized Pipeline Networks but Networks with very low Pressures. In order to fulfil the water demand of the Continuously Growing Population, it is essential to provide a sufficient and uniform Quantity of water through the designed network of pipes. In this research, the analysis of the existing network was studied and concludes Reliability on the network using EPANET software. EPANET software is simulation tool which is used for efficient distribution of water supply. For the analysis of existing water distribution system various data are required like, Main water source, Population of the area, Demand for water, Requirement of the pumps, Distribution Network ,and water tanks. The Google Earth Image of Olpad village is downloaded and the elevation of a node, length of pipe was recorded for nearly 27 junctions and 35 pipes. These data were 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.
