The contamination of soils and groundwaters is a widely faced problem. Most industrialized nations from risks in the use of groundwater for drinking supply or for irrigational use, and soils are often unusable due to specific contamination. Difficulties are encountered in the understanding of the phenomena occurring in soil and subsoil, bringing uncertainties in the application of new technology on-site.
This Special Issue focuses on innovative technologies, integrated approaches, and the critical discussion of complex case studies of the remediation of contaminated sites. Contributions are encouraged that present studies related to the different stages of soil and groundwater remediation: modeling and experimental studies aimed at deepening the understanding of contamination processes, and the interactions of pollutants with the environmental matrices; experimental works involving the use of novel reactants aimed at improving knowledge on the basic processes of contaminant transport and dispersion; the development of innovative technologies and methodologies and their pilot/full-scale applications; the development and validation of modeling tools to support design of remediation activities; and the development of a new generation of remediation technologies with a lower impact on the environmental matrices, also in the framework of the sustainable remediation.

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 papers will be 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 monthly 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 1800 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.
