An Integrated Smart Water Management System using IoT

Water issue adressed: Too little
The water crisis in megacities

The water crisis in megacities intensifies as we don’t realize how much water we use or how much we waste.  The primary purpose of this paper is to reduce water usage and wastage to conserve water resources. In this paper, we tried to develop an integrated system, which will help people track every individual’s water usage and predict their water usage habits to suggest more efficient behaviors and be easy to implement and popularise in megacities. Moreover, the system includes greywater reuse by recycling greywater to reduce unnecessary water usage and prevent wastage. Finally, the proposed system will help us to reduce water wastage and conserve our limited resources. 

This is how I came up with the idea for this project:

We don't have access to the data of our water usage. As a result, we can't understand if we waste water or not. The idea of tracking water usage came from this search for an easy method to know how much water every household member of our houses uses.
