Special Issue "Water Quality and the Public Health"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 June 2022) | Viewed by 6804
Interests: Hygiene; Epidemiology
The microbiological and chemical quality of potable and recreational water can affect public health. The effects can be acute or long term, including infectious water-related diseases, as well as chronic diseases. Efforts to ensure the supply of safe water are constantly evolving. Managing the risks requires an interdisciplinary holistic approach at the international, national and the local levels, as well as including building/water facility operators and individuals. Water can be contaminated at any stage from the source to its consumption or its final use. Measures to control the risks are applied at the water source, storage and distribution stages. Sanitation, hygiene, technology, treatment, education and others are of consideration when establishing measures to control these risks. This Special Issue focuses on the current research of potable and recreational water quality, the measures applied to ensure the safety of water, as well as the evidence on the effectiveness of risk management approaches and health impacts.
