During feasibility studies, Water Engineers face a daunting task in determining the most suitable techniques to supply water for consumption. This study was done to demonstrate the basic principles that all Water Engineers should consider during decision making in water engineering design projects. Using a case study, the proposed method for water provision was arrived at by assessing various combinations of water supply system components and finally selecting the most suitable combination. Finally, this study selects the most suitable method for supplying water to Kadera Kuoyo village i.e. Rain and spring water conveyed in pipes by gravity. By implementing this system in Kadera Kuoyo, child mortality is reduced and agriculture practised throughout the year. Health and economic status of Kwoyo village will improve.
