Abstract—As of the end of 2013, the population using the facilities other than the municipal water service includes 943,000 people using the village waterworks (42.5%), 472,000 people using the small-sized water supply systems (21.3%), 143,000 people using the exclusive waterworks (6.5%), and 659,000 people using well and other means(29.7%). Currently, the dependency on small-sized water supply systems is very high in small cities and rural areas which have relatively low distribution of waterworks compared to metropolitan areas, and 80 to 150 units are installed and operated in each region. Although the small-sized water supply system should be systematically managed as there were 18,383 of them as of 2013, they are mostly managed by the village residents themselves, and only 7.3% of them are equipped with the water purification system such as slow sand filtration and membrane filtration.  Therefore, the water purification system to actively cope with pollution of raw water and unmanned management through remote control and other means are needed. This study intended to develop and apply the remote monitoring system to integrate the smaller scale waterworks in order to stabilize the water quality.
