Background and objective: Healthy water supply is an interesting issue to researches since global warming of the earth due to factors such as climate changes and increasing fossil fuel consumption consequently reduce available water resources. One of the most challenging issues in this field is health and public health in countries. Water suppliers should aware of all risks evolved in this regard and tries to resolve them by prioritizing. This study considers risk priority in the water supply and distribution system.
Method: This study used experts’ research and views, effective risks and their measurements. Then, by means of the hierarchical analysis process, the significance of the standards has been calculated. Finally, the risks are categorized based on their importance by using TEDIM method (abbr. of multi-criteria and interactive decision making in Portuguese).
Findings: The study results showed that the potential economic loses and refundable capabilities have the most impact on risks assessing; while being ready in crisis and probability of a risk occurrence have less impact than other standards to risks analysis.
Finally, according to criteria importance, the risks of industrial material discharges to water and underground water infiltration to networ have the most importance, while severe climate changes and consumption fluctuation risks have less importance.
Results: Findings showed that factors such as potential economic losses and refundable capabilities, as well as underground water infiltration into network and soil subsidence have the most importance in risk management. Since the risks in water supply and distribution systems play a significant role in managers’ decisions, findings of the study may help to take best decisions to confront the risks. 
Keywords: Risk of water supply and distribution system, AHP, Extended TODIM.
