The system of distribution of drinking water is one of the most important infrastructures of any population in the world. Water is necessary to cover the basic needs of human beings, and also to maintain a healthy flora and fauna. Therefore, all the populations must have an optimal drinking water distribution system that can meet the needs of all. These systems of distribution of drinking water are very affected by the deterioration caused by the use and wear through time, lack of maintenance, personnel poorly trained in their field operations among other factors. In this project a guide was established to optimize the drinking water system of Puerto Rico in an orderly and efficient manner, with the use of advanced technology in terms of geography and instrumentation. The optimization guide is focused on ensuring that the distribution of water provides a high-quality service to the entire population, locating all the components of the distribution system and monitoring them. Key Terms - Geographical Information System, Optimization, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition system, Quality.
