Abstract: Water Technology is a new approach for assessing water quality. Water technology is the method by which the water quality can be improved so as to accept the water for a specific use. In this paper, an IoT based water quality assessment has been carried out. The IoT system consists of electronic devices and associated sensors to capture water quality. Experimental samples for water quality check were chosen from, river Malaprabha. The water samples are collected from a water quality monitoring station near Khanapur town, Belagavi district, in the state of Karnataka, India. The water quality parameters assessed here are temperature, pH, Dissolved Oxygen (DO), Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), Conductivity and Nitrate (NO3). The proposed IoT system collects the real-time water quality data at every regular time interval. The need for real-time assessment is because, in recent years the water is getting polluted at an alarming level, due to urbanization and industrialization, that results in pollutions like an Urban waste, industrial waste, and agricultural waste, etc… disposed into water. Thus making, the use of water even harder for day-to-day anthropogenic activities. The IoT system developed can be used to monitor and assess the water quality parameters.
