    In the research, fractal theory was adopted in water supply network. K-means algorithm was adopted to make the nodes multistage cluster zoning, and prioritize nodes was determined according to the actual situation of each zone level division. In each zone, prim algorithm completed each sub-region of water supply pipe network based on the use of fractal growth of self-organization. The established water supply network could be operated and managed according to the form of partition. The fractal self-growth model was applied to the water distribution system planning of one north city in China, the results clearly show the economic effectiveness.
