Industrial automation systems applied in water supply were quite simple until recently. The advent of Programmable Controllers, associated with the development of modern control theory, allowed a greater and more effective automation of these systems. This paper discusses the use of automation in sanitation systems implementing "artificial intelligence" for operational decision making, seeking a better distribution of water between distribution reservoirs. The application of the results can bring benefits related to meeting the daily demands of water of the distribution system. This dissertation under the title "Automation in water supply systems. Case of the reservation control distribution" was applied in a project developed by Companhia de Saneamento Básico do Estado de São Paulo - SABESP in the city of Santa Rosa de Viterbo, in which various automation concepts have been used successfully. The resulting integrated system using PLCs and a system to control and acquire data (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition - SCADA) contributed to a significant improvement in the storage and distribution system. The "artificial intelligence" implanted in this work for operational decision making can be verified through the presented results
