Therefore their management is essential for the city in order to reduce the insufficiencies of the environment and to satisfy the citizens. The infrastructures not only are necessary in meeting daily public needs, but they are also necessary in meeting other needs. As a result the infrastructure development will meet a wider range of public needs as well as being the source for economic and industrial activities. In some developed countries, besides their basic role in meeting technical needs they are also designed to accommodate people in the natural crisis. The life of the infrastructures is tied to the physical life of the societies for their existence is essential for the maintenance and sustainability of public life in the city. City utilities and equipments can be considered a sub – system that forms the city alongside the route and housing sub –systems.
