This research paper describes now days in urban areas the water supply to residence and commercial establishments are provided at a fixed flow rate. There are certain incidents that excess water is drawn by the customer or other users unofficially then it is considered as water theft. So in this project we propose a method for developing an embedded based remote water monitoring and theft detection and prevention system by taking the data base of water supply at the consumer end. The overall objective of a distribution system is to deliver wholesome water to the consumer at particular area and in sufficient quantity and achieve continuity and maximum coverage at affordable cost. To attain this objective the organization has to evolve operating procedures to ensure that the system can be operated satisfactorily, function efficiently and continuously as far as possible at lowest cost. All the details will be shown in the web server using IoT module connected to the controller. So that the authorities can take necessary action in case of misuse. This is an advanced, trouble-free, and fit and forgets system for water board. By using all these malfunctioning can be avoided.
