A water station model will simulate the performance of a water distribution system for a given station location and quantity patterns in order to analyze present population distribution in the overall region, establish a reasonable local sample for each district network and obtain the optimal solution of the water supply stations. To establish a local sample, this model uses the Fuzzy C-Means algorithm (FCM algorithm) of the fuzzy clustering method. The sites have been modified with the mobile method so that the group points can be located at places nearest to the roadside in order to achieve the minimum cost. However, these points may not be the least costly solution. Capital benefit and efficiency are discussed in accordance with the local results obtained for each district. It is applicable to the group site for each water supply district to establish water supply stations of multi-functions.
