In a smart city, the following factors are very vital such as smart grid, e-health. Smart city is one of the burning topics of research. Although there is no particular definition of smart city, it means smart grid, e-health, e-environmental monitoring, smart home, smart water quality, smart air quality etc. integrated into a single application. Human civilisation cannot be sustained and prosper with shortage of usable water. Hence, water has a vital share in human life even living in smart cities. This paper describes about the smart water quality issues in a smart city and some of the research advances in handling those issues. Among them it investigates the rain water harvesting technologies and some of their practical applications.
