Smart Water Management using Real Time Data and ICT: A solution for water management challenges

Yusera Farooq Khan, Abdul Quyoom


Water is  for the most precious resource in the world. It is what separates Earth from the other planets and allows life to thrive. Without it, life would cease to exist.  To conserve the water we should use water effectively. In this paper we have  take the step to conserve the water that is smart water management system. Smart Water Management (SWM) uses Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and real-time data and responses as an integral part of the solution for water management challenges. The potential application of smart systems in water management is wide and includes solutions for water quality, water quantity, efficient irrigation, leaks, pressure and flow, floods, droughts and much more. By applying SWM infrastructure such as sensors, smart meters, monitors, GSM and satellite mapping, and other data sharing tools to water management, real-time solutions can be implemented and broader networks can work together to reduce current water management challenges. It can be helpful for the future generation also, to some extent we can save the water and use that adequately and wastage will be less.
