ABSTRACT
Have you ever come across a water pipeline continuously oozing water out of it, which flows down the roads and into the gutters? I am sure you would have. This is a common scene especially in India, where the total length of water pipelines spread across the country goes into lakhs of kilometers. Fresh water, as fossil fuels, is scarce and must be utilized efficiently. Many methods for controlling leakage from urban water supply systems have emerged, but it still remains a challenge in developing countries like India. This paper describes a smart device which 'scans' the entire water pipeline and give the exact location of leakage area in the pipeline. Also one of the major important uses of this device is that it can identify illegal connections in the water pipeline by providing their exact location.
