Wireless Sensor Network For Real Time Monitoring And Detection Of Water Contamination
The Importance of getting clean drinking water creates a need of new technologies and approaches towards real time monitoring of water quality. Water contamination can have serious risks to health of public and industries which demands supply of high quality water. This paper gives a novel and low cost approach towards the problem of water quality monitoring. The paper focuses on developing low cost sensors for monitoring different water parameters. These sensors are in-pipe sensors and can be used for real time monitoring of the water quality in water distribution systems. A sensor array is developed based on some important water parameters. selected water parameters are pH, Turbidity, Electrical Conductivity and Temperature. A circuit for analog signals conditioning, processing is also developed.
