Floating Water Quality Sensor

The aim of this project is to determine the effect of climate change on river water quality.

The turbidity of a river tend to change significantly during a period of heavy rainfall. Climate change causes shifts in the air and ocean currents, which causes drastic changes in rainfall patterns. Due to this, the water quality of rivers can change abruptly throughout the year. These unpredictable changes in turbidity can massively increase the cost of drinking water treatment.

This project aims to determine how rainfall patterns coincide with the turbidity and turbulence of a flowing body of water, by using a floating sensor.

Note : Please note that this project is still in Proof of Concept (POC) stage, and further improvements may need to be done as the project matures.”
