Abstract:

This paper aims at a solution to overcome and reduce river water pollution; factories waste and residential waste that is discharged into river areas that are still used by pond farmers as a source of fresh water in their ponds. If the river water is polluted, it will adversely affect the productivity of the ponds. To overcome the problem of pollution in ponds, it is necessary to research the parameters of pH, temperature and oxygen content in river water. Therefore, flexibility is needed from a system for monitoring the quality and prevention of river water pollution, based on the Android operating system that helps the performance of farmers to find out more about river water pollution wherever they position is.

This system design uses Atlas Scientific's DO (Dissolved Oxygen) sensor, v1.1 module pH sensor and DS18b20 temperature sensor. Oxygen content data by DO sensors, pH and water temperature of the river, which have been processed by the system will be displayed on the LCD monitor, then the data will be sent in the form of SMS (Short Message Service) to the user's Smartphone using a modem. If river water pollution is detected, the accuracy rate of this monitoring system is 90% with an average error rate of 3.9% on the measurement of oxygen levels, 2.8% on pH measurements and 1.01% for temperature measurement on river water.
