Analog water meter is commonly used by water utilities department in order to calculate the amount of water usage per house in residential area. Traditionally the utilities company will hire an employee to take the reading and print a bill for the respective houses. The Traditional system has few complications which needed improvisations. Usually, it is said to be imprecise in taking meter readings due to mechanical damage or any other physical malfunction. This project is design as solution to improvise the current tradition system. This is made to improvise the present analog water meter towards more precise digital water meter where it has the ability to show amount of the current usage with its corresponding instantaneous utility charge. This function will benefit the consumer where they can monitor and control the water usage. This project has ability to generate its own DC power supply by using the small scale water hydro generator which converts water usage of the consumer (water flow in the main pipe) into electrical energy. This energy will be stored by using an electrical energy storage device. Eventually, this method will contribute towards the Green Technology as this issue is widely emphasized throughout the nation to increase the usage of renewable energy. Moreover, this project acts beneficially to the utility corporate whereby it cuts down the time taken to take reading on the water meter which supplies water to the user because this system will integrate with another utility system which is the energy meter (electric meter) to manage the water supply readings by using wireless system such as XBEE. With further modification of the current system, this project can be upgrade its application by using motorize valve to cut off the water utility supply for the consumer whom didn‟t not settle bill payment.
