Abstract: Monitoring Dams safety and water management is extremely important considering both the situations like water scarcity and excess of water. It is of crucial importance and needs to develop information system based on existing system allowing utilization of intelligent sensors network. Basic idea is to describe possibilities of IoT applications in Dam Safety and water management. Here the entire dam and the main pipeline is sensed 24x7 through various sensors. These wireless sensor nodes connected with each other and transmits the data to a gateway. Common storage space ‘CLOUD’ stores and provides on line information to the observer. Employing an IoT for the said purpose will definitely help saving the most precious natural resource the water. Here in this paper an attempt is made proposing an electronic circuit design employing an Internet of Things concept for the purpose. Ultrasonic sensor is used to find the crack in dam and vibration sensor is used to find any abnormal changes in dam due to natural disaster.
