Water quality is central to the integrity of the environment as well as to supply our needs for drinking water and agriculture. Remote monitoring of water resources and infrastructure is becoming increasingly necessary to carefully monitor wildlife, feral animals, pest plants, unauthorized access to the catchment areas and water sources, and determine the impact of bushfires, flooding, logging, coal seam gas (CSG) and pollution in catchment areas. Recent advances in sensor technologies, signal processing, embedded computing, wireless communication, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and other smart technologies offer water managers cost effective and real-time management strategies for water quality in their catchments and across their networks.
