Time required to travel and collect water samples is time-consuming where the collection of these samples from remote locations can drastically impact the water quality. Examples of these impacts include fluctuating temperatures and settling of the samples. Quality will diminish and inaccurate measurements will conceive invalid data relative to the actual water source. The recent innovation of IoT enabled sensors and actuators throughout recent years have proven beneficial to society. Here, we examine the integration of an IoT enabled microcontroller unit with a nitrate sensor to readily test and send a live data feed of the nitrate content of a remote water source to benefit the surrounding community dependent of this water source.
