Abstract: Water quality is important to our health and well-being .Water quality monitoring plays a vital role in keeping the planet healthy and sustainable. Due to increasing industrialization and environmental imbalance, water quality and fresh water quantity are decreasing day by day. In this paper, a reconfigurable hardware system is developed to monitor the water quality and physical parameters are monitored using temperature sensor and turbidity sensor; chemical parameters are monitored using pH sensor; in addition CO2 and water level sensors are used. These sensors are interfaced with the reconfigurable hardware i.e., FPGA. This FPGA is used to monitor the water related parameters such as water quality, waste water parameters and also used in agricultural fields. The hardware is implemented using Verilog HDL. Wireless Sensor Network enables interface between human and computer by means of wireless link. The output is displayed in the personal computer.
