Quality of water in various uses such as drinking water, domestic consumption, food and soft drinking production and recreational water use may have important effects on human health. Unpolluted natural water is of good quality. Water pollution and other environmental pollution caused the deterioration of water quality with serious consequences in human health. Production of new synthetic organic compounds and new pharmaceutical compound are adding more than 10,000 compounds a year to the production list. These emerging new compounds are now found in the water supply and drinking water and have significant effects on human health. New and advanced water treatment processes are developed for the removal of these emerging compounds in drinking water in order to minimize the effects on human health. Identifying health effects related to water quality problems is challenging to engineering professionals and health professionals.
This special issue focuses on the current status of research in water quality with emphasis in drinking water quality, effects of water quality on human health, and how to reduce the health effects related water quality.Prof. Dr. Yung-Tse Hung
