Soil contamination and water eutrophication have become a worldwide issue. Soil contamination by heavy metals and/or organic chemicals has resulted in decreased soil productivity and posed a threat to food safety and human health as well as food security. Water eutrophication causes water quality degradation and aquatic ecosystem dysfunction, thus impacting water availability, environmental quality, and community living standards. In recent decades, many efforts have been directed to understanding the mechanisms of soil and water contamination and remediation and developing strategies for remediating and improving quality and productivity of contaminated soil and water systems. This Special Issue on “Remediation of Contaminated or Degraded Soil and Water Resources” aims to provide a platform for soil, water, and environmental scientists to publish their new research findings (research articles) and provide insight and directions of research (review paper) in the increasingly important fields.
