Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The aim of this Special Issue is to present the current state of knowledge on Urban Water Supply Systems. Currently, scientific methods are widely implemented in the water supply systems operation. Water network managers are increasingly aware of the benefits of implementing models and various procedures. Hydraulic and GIS models and their use in the aspect of water failure risk analysis are becoming more and more popular. Large water companies are implementing Water Safety Plans, while smaller companies are often just starting preparations for implementation.

In this Special Issue, articles relating to the issue of hydraulic modeling, failure analysis, and costs of functioning of collective water supply systems are expected. We also expect articles describing the implementation of Water Safety Plans, as well as others describing modern ways to improve the functioning of Urban Water Supply Systems. This Special Issue aims to collect in one place the best publications related to Urban Water Supply Systems, which would be helpful for people managing municipal water companies.
