A method is developed for estimating the seismic serviceability of water supply systems. The method can account for uncertainties in earthquake, mechanical properties of soil and pipelines, and water demand. An interactive-graphical preprocessing and postprocessing computer code, GISALLE, has been developed based on this method. The code is applied to the serviceability analysis of the Auxiliary Water Supply System in San Francisco.
