Recently, water pollution is considered as the greatest threat for green globalization. In past scenario, water quality was measured by chemical tester laboratory test. This was a manual and time consuming system. Different methodologies have been evolved to detect and improve water quality. In this paper, a new model is proposed to continuously monitor the water quality for horticulture and aquaculture. Several sensors are used to detect various parameters which are significant in determining the quality of water. Sensor values are stored and analyzed in Thingspeak cloud. Users can view the data collected from sensors via an android application. This improvised system for measuring water quality in horticulture and aquaculture can be implemented in running water. It monitors more number of parameters and users get timely alerts if the value of any parameter(s) is above threshold value. Pushbullet is used to get timely notification.
