Abstract. New concepts and techniques are replacing traditional methods of water quality parameters measurement systems. This paper introduces the Cyber Physical System (CPS) approach for water quality assessment in distribution network. The proposed CPS consist of (a.) Sensing framework (b.) Soft Computing framework for computational modelling and data analysis. Sensing frame work consist of integrated Multi Sensor Array (MSA) and Soft Computing framework utilizes the applications of Python for user interface and Fuzzy Sciences for decision making. Extensive research suggest that pH, Dissolved Oxygen (D.O.), Electrical Conductivity (E.C.), Oxygen Reduction Potential (O.R.P.) and Temperature are suitable water quality parameters. Therefore, individual sensor of each parameter has been integrated to form Integrated MSA. Soft Computing mainly consist of Python framework for user interface and fuzzy logic for decision support system. Target of this proposed research is to provide simple, efficient, cost effective and socially acceptable means to detect the presence of contamination in water distribution network using applications of CPS.

Short summary
Water quality can be easily monitored in treatment plants and pumping stations. However, very difficult to monitor in distribution system in real time. Introduction of multiple sensors in water distribution system generate huge number of data matrices, which sometimes highly complex, difficult to understand and convoluted for effective decision making. The proposed system framework simplify the complexity of obtained sensor data matrices and support decision making for water engineers.
