Abstract: The concept of Geographic Information System (GIS) is a logical approach to understand the location significance of the information. This is often referred upon as the spatial information. Urbanization is a happening which is related to locations in a space. One needs to be concern with locations in order to understand the urban problems It is the technical possibility to relate various subject matters together in a comprehensive management system sometimes called Executive Information System `EIS'.[6] GIS has been regarded and proven as an efficient and powerful tool in the water distribution industry. According to American Water Works Association, 90% of water agencies are now partially using GIS to assist their daily operation. The business operations in the water/wastewater industry requires the District to keep complete and detailed inventory, including location and condition of all assets such as water mains, valves, hydrants, meters, storage facilities, sewer mains, and manholes. GIS is a state-of-the-art technology capable of efficiently performing all these data-related processes. The description and formulation of the relationships can be made quickly and accurately. The accuracy and speed is greatly enhanced, now that computers are available. An accurate map and a related list of information linking to the points, lines, polygons and symbols in the map can be considered as the principles of the GIS system. The GIS used by the city administrations often relates the planning and management work to the land-parcels...
