Special Issue Information
Due to continuous urbanization, there is increasing demand for tap water in cities. Aging infrastructure, emerging pathogens, micropollutants and demand for higher standard from the consumers is creating pressure on water companies. Water distribution networks have become the most vulnerable section of the drinking water supply. Despite the availability of the new types of sensors, information technologies, and analytical methods, the rate of integration of these innovation in water distribution network systems is not sufficient.
The aim of the Special Issue is to gather up-to-date knowledge and the best practices of water quality management in water distribution networks and application of new solutions in the water networks. A wide range of topics including water quality, leakage, water safety plants, quality modelling, hydraulics, and biostability as well social–economical aspects of water in the cities are welcome in this Special Issue.
