Biological diversity or biodiversity is an important element in the river water management system. The interaction between the various organisms in the river makes it a very complex ecological system. Therefore, water safety issues are a very important issue. Consumer complaints and reports made by the relevant government departments indicate that consumers are dissatisfied with the quality of water supplied. Hence, a concept in which equipment, machines, sensors and devices are connected to the Internet and there is data collection and transfer through the network developed to follow the river water quality index. Integration of the elements of sustainability and IR4.0 through the Internet of Thing by adopting electronic and Internet applications of Thing has a very positive impact to refresh the approach to lesions in Malaysia. The project aims to develop a wireless water quality monitoring system that aids in continuous measurements of water conditions based on pH and turbidity measurements. The developed system was successfully detecting both the pH and turbidity values. Water analysis and monitoring is a very important aspect of water conservation and protection. Water is a vital resource that runs more quickly overtime. To ensure continued supply of safe, clean drinking water, together as community to protect and to this vital resource.
