The present paper deals with the study of Average water demand in specified areas of Indore City, India, and this is based on water demand calculations per capita demand. The observation of the water supply system for three colonies; Bank colony, Vishwakarma Nagar, and Usha Nagar from Annapurna tank Indore were studied. Suitable data were acquired to identify whether the Average water demand for a single person (which is about 135 L/day) is fulfilled or not.
