Hydraulic integrity problem is mostly associated with the water distribution system (WDS) of developing countries. The problem of integrity of network is further exemplified by deteriorated condition of network that leads to high leakage rates. In the present study, the performance of the WDS in a pilot study area of Nagpur city (India) is evaluated using EPANET software. Both continuous as well as intermittent water supply simulations are performed. ArcGIS10 is used to generate the maps of water supply network, node network, and elevation map. Remote sensing image is used to generate the population data. The HydroGen extension to ArcView which is a series of Avenue scripts is used to create hydraulic model data input files for EPANET. Model simulation results obtained using EPANET for the both supply modes identify critical areas with respect to pressure drop at various nodes. The suggestions made for controlling leakage and maintaining hydraulic integrity of the system are useful for the municipal authority for implementing 24×7 water supply scheme
