Unexpected shortage of water supply is common phenomena especially in dense population such as in hotels. Water supply at the students; hostel is usually drawn from tank at the roof top of the building. Apparently there is no early warning system to monitor the tank water level when it has reached the critical level. The situation worsened when there is no personnel or technician in-charge to do the maintenance at the time it is needed. It becomes worst especially at the week ends and public holidays. Students have to wait for couple of days for the water supply to resume. This paper presents the development of water level monitoring system with an integration of GSM module to alert the person-in-charge through Short Message Service (SMS). The water technician mobile's phone upon reaching the critical level. The prototype was tested and functioned properly as a mean to reduce the risk of unexpected shortage of water supply.
