Implementation of wireless sensor network for real time overhead tank water quality monitoring

Water is a precious source vital for healthy living. Most of the infectious diseases are due to contaminated water which leads to millions of deaths every year. There is a need to establish Water quality monitoring system to verify whether the determined water quality is suitable for intended use. This paper presents the application of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology for real time online Water quality monitoring. In this paper, the details of system design and implementation of WSN are presented. Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) for a water quality monitoring is composed of number of sensor nodes with networking capability which are deployed at different overhead tanks and water bodies in an area. . Each sensor node consists of an PIC microcontroller, IoT module and water quality sensors, the sensor probes shall continuously measure the different water quality parameters like pH, Temperature, Conductivity. The parameters are measured in real time by the sensors and send the data to the data center. Data collected from remote nodes are displayed in the user PC.
