    Potable water supply in Tunisia is characterized by the achievement of good performance, officially attributed to a centralized public management and to the social policy pursued in the sector for over forty years. The latter was mainly realized through cross-subsidization between regions at national level, and between levels of consumption. This article describes this development ; it then considers the limitations of the current centralized organization and discusses the equity criteria adopted to set up the territorial compensation mechanism ; mobilizing for this purpose the theory of distributive justice as one of the analysis grids. It highlights certain issues that should be addressed by future social sciences studies and research in order to propose possible developments of these criteria and the resulting changes in service organization.
