Abstract: Pashan Lake in Pune, Maharashtra, India is one of the ancient man-made lakes constructed during British era majorly as a source of water supply for the neighboring colony. Over a while, the lake has switnessed severe degradation of water quality owing to heavy deforestation on neighboring hills, hyacinth formation, industrial effluents, and various anthropogenics activities. A consistent rise in pollution is reported, making the lake water non-potable. Recently, the monitoring and analysis of the lake’s water quality status are under consideration to check the suitability of water for drinking. Further, this can aid in planning suitable measures to reduce pollution levels. To address such need of real-time water quality data aforementioned, this paper proposes an online portable water quality monitoring and notification system. An Internet of things(IoT) based platform has been developed with the ability to sense, record, process and wirelessly transmit water quality data. Such platforms enable remote access to data about quality status of any water resource. Further, the developed system has been deployed in Pashan Lake and the results so obtained have been discussed.
