Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Hydrologically, water on Earth is always recycled and, in many cases, water is reused due to the flow in the watershed. Planned reuse of water to increase the available water resources of a city or a region may be more controversial, even if the uses are beneficial and the water stress of the region decreases. Mature treatment methods, such as membrane technology and advanced oxidation, are available to ensure water quality. Established online monitoring methods to assess microbial and chemical water quality have proven their efficiency. Still, public confidence in water reuse is lacking. This Special Issue of Water will focus on how water reuse in society can be fortified without jeopardizing the safety and security of the water supply, including non-potable and potable uses.
Using wastewater as a resource and its potential resue at different levels in agriculture, urban mining, or drinking water; the impact of the coming IoT in our wastewater utilities, that in some years will be ubiquitous in our smart cities; the security issues associated with the public acceptance of water from unconvencional resources; and the development of future wastewater and water reuse policies, are just a few of the possible topics to the discussed and developed.
We welcome advanced and innovative wastewater management articles, as well as water reuse papers in the areas of health, social, policy and environmental issues, performance and quality control.

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 semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
