Water Quality Index (WQI) is a widespread technique used to work out the water quality. Computing methodology suitable for diverse water sources, using a large number of water quality elements is an immense mission. In this learning, we demonstrate a proficient water quality analysis software tool named AQUASCOPEvl (AQUASCOPE variant-1). An indexing catalog which holds up to 30 Water Quality (WQ) parameters was structured. We established a water quality indexing scheme named Aquascope Quality Index (AQI) accustomed to calculate the suitability of water for healthy drinking use. The arranged directory was geared up with the water quality standards suggested by WHO (World Health Organization), EPA (Environment Protection Agency) and BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards). A typical software and AQI model were modernized for water quality computation of remarkable water sources. The proposed AQUASCOPEvl Software was attempted for the quality assessment of a miraculous water source called Wadi Darbat Lake located in the Salalah city of Sultanate of Oman. The water qualities were checked before, after and during the Khareef monsoon season, the annual rain fall of Salalah. Besides, AQUASCOPEvl was also tested to produce quality results for commercially offered drinking water in Oman. The estimated outputs were classified into Excellent (E), Medium (M), Severe (S), Very Severe (VS) and Extremely Severe (ES).
