Water supply network is a system of engineered hydrologic and hydraulic components which provide needed water. Our project will be carried out in Al-Zababdeh,as part of community based learning program. The water network in Al-Zababdeh         doesnt work efficiently because there is a sharp jump in the demand. Also, the expansion of village should be taken in our consideration. Moreover, the village has no sewer system, which mean that we have to design it. Also, there are some problems in the storm drainage in some locations that need some attention.  Our project will have two main approaches. Studying water network, and fixing any existing problem found in the current network. Many aspects have to be considered in the project. First of all , the number of population in future depending on increasing rate, the economical evaluation of the project, also we will check the adequacy of the water network to meet the demand in its peak condition. Another important aspect is to make sure that velocity and pressure values are within the acceptable limits. For the sewer network, we have to design the network depending on the flowrate which produced from all houses and buildings, and to design a suitable waste water treatment plant. Its obvious that the main objectives of the project are to cover the needed demand of water for each house or facility, within a minimum cost and high water quality. Methodology starts by collecting data and information from the area of study and from previous studies related to the project, including the total demand, expected population, contour map and rainfall data for 15 years. And by using the suitable computer softwares (WaterCad, StormCad, GIS and SewerCad) this data will be used to design networks which meet the required objectives.
