Water quality monitoring has become a crucial question around the whole world. Traditionally, remote water sensing based on satellites is widely used to monitor the water quality for rivers, lakes, seas and oceans. Recent advances in communication technology, especially wireless sensor networks have inspired numerous remote sensing and control applications. Here, the authors focus on the monitoring and control of water quality in natural water bodies such as rivers and lakes. An intelligent system that combines monitoring and actuation capabilities is designed. Major technical challenges such as sensor selection and control over wireless networks are discussed and appropriate algorithms are adopted based on system design requirement.
