Abstract: Water is the most essential and foremost constituent for all the organisms living in the earth. Sometimes it would be the major reason for the demolishment of lives when the needed level is increased. This resource is available through low, moderate and high level rainfall and it is preserved in various places for future usages. In this paper we discuss about the disaster caused by water stored in dam. When the storage level of the dam is increased, it is expelled or released without any alarm as a result it squashes many of the lives. Our main focus is to issue alarms before releasing the water from dam. We use an unmanned method using wireless sensor technique to monitor the water level continuously, if it reaches the saturation point (extreme storage level), we propose 3 alarming facilities, as 1. Sending message to the people located in the area, 2. Provide audio alarm which is battery enabled 3. Make drone alarming (UAV) to all the people. After the alarming process is done the shutters of the dam is released to expel the water.
