An Expert System for Rural Water Supply Management


 

Most of the rural settlers are faced with the problem of potable water supply due to the high cost of water management (construction, installation and maintenance), thereby, the villagers are involved in taking unpurified water from streams and open wells which may eventually affect their health. This necessitated the need for a better system. An expert system was suggested which involves purification of stream water through a specially-designed reservoir and sedimentation tank. The system was a complete water supply chain network that made used of an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) interactive phase through sensors and simulation; to diagnose and execute problems in the system setup. It also provided for irrigation and minor farm activities for the surrounding farm settlers to minimize water wastage.

Abstract


Most of the rural settlers are faced with the problem of potable water supply due to the high cost of water management (construction, installation and maintenance), thereby, the villagers are involved in taking unpurified water from streams and open wells which may eventually affect their health. This necessitated the need for a better system. An expert system was suggested which involves purification of stream water through a specially-designed reservoir and sedimentation tank. The system was a complete water supply chain network that made used of an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) interactive phase through sensors and simulation; to diagnose and execute problems in the system setup. It also provided for irrigation and minor farm activities for the surrounding farm settlers to minimize water wastage.
