The subject of the research in this paper is the artificial intelligence models through a modern methodological approach to solving complex water management problems. Fuzzy logic as new mathematics, neural networks and fuzzy expert systems open up great opportunities in simulating and solving real problems related to the division of water and water resources. When decision-makers seek optimum, in addition to technical and economic criteria, sometimes the decisive influence belongs to the low, ecology, political, territorial, social, religious or cultural criteria. The developed theoretical model was tested and confirmed by the development of an expert system for the selection of an optimal solution for the management and distribution of the water potential of the Drina River, in the zone of different entities, between the cities of Foča and Goražde. Holistic approach and synergy appreciation of all relevant criteria resulted in the fact that the solution found by the expert model was also implemented in practice, which is confirmation for the expert system developed.
