Effective contamination event detection methods in water distribution systems identify abnormal system behavior. Since on-line instrumentation capable of measuring and detecting all possible contaminants do not exist, the presence of pollutants can be inferred only through surrogate measurements. Such measurements can distinguish irregularities in monitored water quality, hydraulic parameters, and their interplay during normal operating conditions. Furthermore, the shortage of real-time data, coupled with uncertainties in network topology, water consumption, and event characteristics, make the problem of active contamination event detection, a considerable challenge. This Special Issue will collect state-of-the-art knowledge on contamination event detection modeling in water distribution systems. Studies on new methods for event detection in water distribution systems and, in particular, the inclusion of uncertainty in active contamination event detection are of specific interest. Review papers, as well as experimental/empirical studies on contamination detection, are welcome as well.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
