Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Urban water management has changed over the last ten years, transforming from building traditional sewers to implementing sustainable drainage systems, which are also known as best management practice in the USA and are part of a water-sensitive urban design philosophy. Sustainable drainage systems such as permeable pavements, infiltration trenches, green roofs, ponds and wetlands address water quality and quantity challenges, and should enhance the local biodiversity while also being acceptable to the public. Barriers for their implementation include adoption problems, flood and diffuse pollution control challenges, negative public perception and a lack of decision support tools addressing particularly the retrofitting of these systems. Therefore, I would like to call for papers to disseminate and share findings on current challenges facing sustainable drainage systems.
Papers are selected by a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, development and application. Original research paper or reviews are invited in the following and related areas:
  • Infiltration techniques
  • Ponds and wetland systems
  • Adoption of sustainable drainage systems
  • Climate change adaptation measures
  • Public perception of sustainable drainage
  • Integration of sustainable drainage into water-sensitive urban design
  • Decision-support systems

Yours sincerely,

Prof. Dr. Miklas Scholz
Guest Editor
