In the present years water
resource that can be utilized for domestic usage is getting reduced
dramatically. In order to have sufficient water for the utilization of future
generation, it is our duty to conserve and utilize the available water in a
very efficient way. This paper is aimed to help the people to conserve water;
it is done with the help of an embedded system that is reconfigurable depending
on the number of persons in the family. The system consists of three modules.
Each has a different purpose, one module senses the water level present in the
tank and intimates the user regarding when the water is needed to be restored.
The second module deals with the division of water based on the type of
application for which is intended. The third module deals with intimating the
municipality regarding the availability of water. All the three modules combine
to work in conserving the water; as a result, we can consume nearly 30% per year
per head. So this would result in a large amount of conservation of water. Thus
the saved water can be reused for several applications.
