Drinking water supply is one of the prime services to be provided by government in any nation. Our survey shows that in Ahmadabad, Gujarat, India the water reservoir near filtration has capacity to intake raw water and delivers aprox. 50 MLD (Million Liters per Day) of filtered water. And also there is frequent problem of tapping water illegally by making use of suction pumps. Hence an efficient water distribution system is prime necessary to meet every demand for water supply. In this paper an improved method of water distribution system by automization using PLC (programmable Logic Controller) and SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) is explained. And also water theft monitoring is implemented using flow variation sensed by flow switch mounted on the water pipes. The power for the system is generated by making use of thrust of water flow in the channels. The above process is implemented in a prototype panel model and tested.
