Project objectives: The use of common water system for the serve of technical and drinkable water economic expenses can go down on 45… 70% at the concordance of the modes of delivery and consumption of technical and drinkable water. 
The task Focusing on optimization from the earliest stages will allow water utilities to more effectively deploy a smart water system. In addition, utilities deploying smart water technologies should involve customers from the earliest stages of planning and deployment.  Finally, water utilities should plan for decreased departmentalization and an integrated system that maximizes information, through both information technology and operations technology.
Smart water management also helps to minimize energy usage in pumping of water at water utilities, cost of detection of leaks and theft, and enhances customer engagement in water conservation.
The water pollution by solid and liquid impurities leads to a change in its optical and dielectric properties. This changes the transparency, which can be controlled in the optical range at several wavelengths. Using of multiple frequency bands allow to evaluate the transparency of water in these bands, as well as to estimate the size of present in water solid micro impurities with the help of transparency. The use of method of capillary-waveguide resonance allows to detect the presence of micro impurities in the water, and to assess its purity. Thus in the range of 60 .. 68 GHz with this method may detect impurities with boundary concentrations of 0.1%.

The use of common water system for the serve of technical and drinkable water economic expenses can go down on 45… 70% at the concordance of the modes of delivery and consumption of technical and drinkable water. 
Problems to be solved in the project:
 •    Minimization of the costs for providing consumers with drinking and industrial water.
•    Fullest through phased water use from the moment of the first customers to the consumer and subsequent disposal or return of water to clean up and re-use.
•    Integration of developed sensors into smart water meters.
•    The development of software tools for optimization of water resources control and supply of water to each customer with determine quality.
