In order to have sustainable development, the resources need to be judiciously utilized. This paper illustrates on how we can limit our water requirements according to our needs as well as its distribution among the multi-storied buildings which are being constructed within premises or outskirts of each and every city. The overhead tank being placed on the top of the building will furnish equal amount of water to each and every floor with the use of flow sensors, servomotor, and control valves that are operated by a microcontroller, helping the system to run efficiently yielding better output.
