Wireless communication developments are creating new sensor capabilities. The current developments in the field of sensor networks are critical for environmental applications. Internet of Things (IoT) [3] allows connections among various devices with the ability to exchange and gather data. IoT also extends its capability to environmental issues in addition to automation industry. As water is one of the basic needs of human survival, it is required to incorporate some mechanism to monitor water quality from time to time. Around 40% of deaths are caused due to contaminated water in the world. Hence, there is a necessity to ensure supply of purified drinking water for the people both in cities and villages. Water Quality Monitoring System (WQMS) is a cost-effective and efficient system designed to monitor drinking water quality which makes use of Internet of Things (IoT) technology. In this paper, the proposed system consists of several sensors to measure various parameters such as pH value, the turbidity in the water, dissolved oxygen, and temperature. And also, the Microcontroller Unit (MCU) interfaced with these sensors and further processing is performed at Personal Computer (PC).
