Various theoretical and applied network theory approaches for assessing the reliability of water delivery systems are examined including signal flow methodology and connectivity as well as structural integrity in a utility-type power system network. Problems of topological and flow reliability and associated sensitivity analyses are discussed. Various criteria are applied to identify critical and structurally important components, including a method of calculating frequency of system failure. Various concepts are illustrated by simple examples.
