feeder for drinking water supply (system)

My comment:

adduction : lat. adduction - cf "conduire"

cf G. Brace + M. Moureau Dict. technique, TECHNIP
feeder = conduite ou canalisation d'amenée
feeding = alimentation

cf http://water.rajasthan.gov.in/content/water/en/indiragandhinahardepartment/AboutUs.html
cf cf Dr. Ernst Dict. de la Technique Industrielle, Dict. of Engineering and Technology
cf https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_supply_network
cf https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%A9seau_de_distribution_d%27eau
NB + cf https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adduction_d%27eau :
"AEP = adduction d'eau potable se divise en divers éléments ..."

More context is required in order for a definitive answer. If the context is one of a supplier of pipes, pumps or other related equipment my answer would be "3 water supply (systems) in ..." If the context is one of a water treatment plant supplying potable water to three locations my answer would be "3 feeder mains (or trunk mains). I suspect the former is more likely than the latter as the reference to only three locations in a very large country (assuming that Soudan is, in fact, a reference to Sudan, Africa and not a city in a French territory) seems unlikely.
