Water Level Monitor in Smart Water Management
In smart water management, monitoring water levels automatically is important, be it a reservoir, sump, overhead tank or bore/open wells. Water level monitoring along with automated motor control reduces labor cost and water wastage. Manual monitoring and control can lead to overflowing or dried storgage due to manual errors but can be virtually eliminated through continuous automated monitoring. A level monitoring at a home or apartment level can save water by reducing wastage, and along with other technologies like automated metering can significantly impact the money spent on water. ...
Reusing Wastewater for Farming
Only around 45% of India’s farmland are irrigated even though studies have shown that irrigated land yields up to twice as much as farmlands depending only on rains.
Irrigation in India includes a network of major and minor canals from Indian rivers, groundwater well based systems, tanks and rainwater harvesting. Of these sources, Indian irrigation predominantly depends on groundwater.
Smart Water Management in Agriculture
Agriculture accounts (on average) for 70 percent of all freshwater withdrawals globally. As per the Central Water Commission, more than 80% of the total water consumed in India is for agriculture. Industrial and domestic sectors consume about 12 and 4 %of total available water, respectively. India does not spend any money in conserving water consumed in agriculture. There are regulations for efficient water management including rainwater harvesting and wastewater management in industrial and urban households. ...
