Project Title Interative Calculator for Water Quality Index (i-CaWaQI)
Project Category Innovation
Abstract i-CaWaQI is an application developed using theoretical algorithm model to automatically produce Water Quality Index (WQI), a numerical indicator of water quality at a certain location and time based on several water quality parameters. It can be used for public usage, academic or research institutions and local authorities. The model is able to simplify the tedious work to identify WQI which is usually done manually and need to refer to standards. With this application, the user only need to key in the required data including the Dissolved Oxygen (DO), Suspended Solids (SS) and pH value. It gives advantage as the WQI can be analyzed in no time. The interface of the model and also the presentation of results are also simple and easy to understand even for a new user. Besides, additional function of this model is that it will provide information on how to treat the water based on their WQI result. i-CaWaQI will be very beneficial especially to our country, Malaysia which uses most of our water resources from a river. Rivers are already part of our life here and we need to ensure the river quality to be maintained properly to achieve sustainable environment. The quality of water that we have will have implications towards our daily living style, as well as our nation's business and economic development. We strongly believe that this application has a high potential in commercialization due to its capability to analyze for WQI while improving the way we manage our water resources.
