The introduction of monitoring to a water supply network results in reducing its failure rate, increasing its reliability as well as improving the quality of water supplied to consumers, reducing water losses and increasing work safety in a water distribution system. Monitoring enables detection of leakages that could go unnoticed without this system, facilitates detection of leakages and location of failures, i.e. it shortens the repair time — or rather its component — the awaiting-repair time. This paper presents the results of the reliability analysis for a city located in the Upper Silesian Industrial Region before and after the implementation of monitoring to the water supply network.
