IoT is a secure communication technology used to transfer data from a physical entity to a device with intelligent analysis tools through a wireless channel. The wastewater treatment method extracts pollutants and transforms them into effluents added to the water supply with minimal environmental effects or recovered directly. The major issue is monitoring the disposal of sewage in the treatment plants. Hence, this paper, Surveillance-based Sewage Wastewater Monitoring System (SSWMS) with IoT, has been proposed for monitoring wastewater treatment and improving water quality. A smart water sensor enabled by IoT monitors water quality, water pressure, and water temperature and quantifies water dynamics to map water flow through the entire treatment facility. The proposed method calculates the wastewater treatment facility's effectiveness and ensures that chemical releases are maintained below allowable levels. Thus, the experimental results show the improved recycling water quality level is raised to 97.98%, enhancing secure communication and less moisture content when compared to other methods.
