Dams provide us with a wide range of social, economic, environmental benefits by helping us in controlling the flow of water, generating hydroelectric power, flood control, waste management, navigational purposes and act as habitats for aquatic life. India has progressed a lot in the construction of dams and water reservoirs after Independence and now we are among the best dam builders in the world. We have around 4300 dams in India and many more are already under the process of construction. But even today most of these dams use the conventional methods of dam management for controlling the dam gates and dam maintenance. In the current fast paced modern world where we are trying to automate all the processes around us, it's high time that we revamp the management of our dams using Internet of Things. In this paper we have proposed and implemented a novel idea of automating the process of dam management from collecting the data of water level to control the dam gates. This idea will help us to streamline the control of dams throughout the country and reduce the manpower for dam maintenance. © 2018 IEEE.
