Network for water supply in Indian small and medium size towns is insufficient to fulfil the whole of the population's needs. Complementary forms of supply fill the gaps left by the municipal services' failure. Among these, small scale water producers and providers coexist with rural practices of free access to private and public sources of water. This article deals with the way in which this diversity of water supply methods organises access to water in the small and medium size towns in the peri-urban territories of Mumbai.
