Network design phase is done before usually laying the network infrastructure. Hence it is very important that the design achieves optimality and reliability. As the water supply industry matures, there is vital interest in good pipe network design. The study is to access some of the causes of water supply problems faced by the Sunyani Community.To find the optimal solution to the pipe network system for the supply path for efficient supply, a solution-oriented modeling approach can help to devise efficient automatic planning and optimization schemes for Sunyani municipal. This thesis discuses how good mathematical models can be obtain for real-world problems using prim‘s algorithm, which model structures to minimize pipe network systems and which can help in easy and less expensive water supply especially in the Asuakwaa in Sunyani from Abesim thus Tano river.The prim‘s algorithm employed to find the optimal solution was able to reduce the total pipe network system of about 30% of the original network. After having briefly explained the main aspect of network planning such as minimum connection, reliability, network configuration and so on, it characterizes the difference situation where basic algorithms of graph theory could be reused.
