The accessibility to high-quality water is the fundamental right of the citizens. As a government, it is essential to supply clean and pure water to avoid spread of any water-borne diseases or spread of epidemics. Hence, there must be a method to dynamically test the quality of water that is supplied for the purpose of daily usage by citizens, and thus enhance the excellence of life. This paper presents the IoT-based water quality monitoring system; it is a real-time monitoring system which will measure important water quality parameters like pH, turbidity and temperature of water, and control impure water flow. The main purpose of the water quality monitoring is to automate the measurement of physical and chemical properties of water during the supply. An objective is to prevent the impure water flow in society and enhance good health. Using this system, the water quality can be evaluated before supply. Based on the data collected from sensors, it will decide purity of water and take the decision to permit or prevent the supply of drinking water immediately, at the point of supply, by closing the valves of water supply pipe.
