Abstract: The study assesses the performance, effectiveness and efficiency of the entire water supply distribution schemes in Ogbomoso North and South. The specific objectives are to assess the existing water supply distribution in Ogbomoso Township, also to carry out diagnostic assessment of the entire water distribution network, so as to evaluate the problems in the entire network. Data were collected through personal interview and observation both for the water corporation and the community supplied. A total of 200 structure questionnaires were administered to the supplied community, it was further analyzed using descriptive statistics. The study revealed that (50.5%) of the community still depended on well and borehole despite being supplied water from the scheme most especially community far away from the water scheme. Also it was gathered that there wasn?t any functional booster station. In addition, feedback from the SPEM showed that the water cooperation has a (44%) operational capacity and (30%) human capacity which is below average, though the SERA showed there were well defined policies and procedures while other evaluation such as organization structure, inventory control and equipment management, work order system are below average. The result shows that the Water supply distribution scheme could not meet the demand of the population in the area. The study therefore recommends the water board should look into alternative source of power which has being the main source of inconsistency in water supply, proper monitoring of the whole board for credibility and accountability and Proper funding of staff to encourage young learned personnel have interest in working in the water board.
