The objective of this article is to study the transition to service remunicipalisation of this service, and the changeruptures and continuityies that can be observed in the organization of the water supply network. The “urban governance” of the new entreprise company has to face, on the one hand, the a process of metropolisation that shares may lead to conflicts between municipalities, and on the other hand, the antagonistconflicting juridical legal logics between the municipal service and the surrounding rural communities, that are crossed by the network to get water down to the citydownstream urban areas.
