Internet of Things (IoT) had emerged as a technology critical for environmental applications. Water is a natural resource and is the basic need for living things. In the current world, there is a scarcity of water due to overpopulation and also contamination of water resources. It is very crucial to save our drinking water for current and future generations. IoT based smart water quality monitoring system is proposed to monitor the quality of water. Different sensors are used to monitor various parameters like pH value, turbidity in the water. The microcontroller unit is interfaced with the sensors to process the data and GSM is used to send information to the monitoring centre for further actions to be performed. Results proved that the quality of the water is verified and SMS is sent to a higher authority.
