This project presents the design and development of a low cost system for real time monitoring of drinking water quality at consumer sites. The system consists of several in-pipes Electrochemical and optical sensors and em phasis is given on low cost,lightweight implementation and reliable long time operation. Su ch implementation is suitable for large deployments enabling a sensor network approach for providing spatiotemporally rich data to water consumers,water companies and authorities.

In this project we overcome the drawback present in existing system by monitoring water quality prob lem for drinking water distribution systems as well as for consumer sites. Our approach is based on the development of low cost sensor nodes for real time and in-pipe monitoring and assessment of wa ter quality on the fly. The ma in sensor node consists of electrochemical and optical sens ors which can be used to mon itor the water quality. From the sensor node we are sending monitored values to control room (A RM board) through RS232 serial cable.
