The research concluded that the performance of water sources management for water supply is considered adequate structurally as well as non structurally. The Indeks of community evaluation is greather than indeks of city carrying capacity. The land carrying capacity could support up to thee times the population 2010. The carrying capacity of existing water sources could only served populatian 2010. However, if all potential water reservoir is constructed and interconected completely, the carrying
capacity of reservoirs sources could served two times population 2010.
