Abstract


The increase of heavy rain has contributed to numerous thunder flood occurrences especially in the area near a river and main drainage. This paper present a water level alert system that has been developed to provide a mean to monitor the water level and send out email alert when the monitoring system sense that the water level has reached a dangerous level. This was done by implementing a e-water level sensor in a flood prone area. A monitoring system will store the water level reading in a database to generate an informative water level graph. This water level graph will then be displayed at the Aqua website, the official website for this research. Public users can browse into this website to get the current water level information for free from any internet enabled devices. Should the monitoring system sense that the water level has reached to a dangerous level, the system will notify user via email.
