The chapter describes a preliminary base version of the WaterSupply model which does not have the full functionality of the model version that was finally implemented in DANUBIA. In particular, it does not make full use of the actor concept to simulate human decisions. However, as this preliminary version still forms an essential base module of the later extended model version, it is recommended to read this chapter to get a better understanding of water supply modelling in DANUBIA. This chapter presents the fundamental steps that were taken to conceptualise and implement this base version of WaterSupply and explains its main purpose and the interaction with the other models within the DANUBIA system. Four maps exemplarily show selected results of the model which are related to the extraction of raw water and the distribution and consumption of drinking water. The main map shows extraction and consumption aggregated on a community (municipality) level.
