Water resources in urban environments are essential. Cities and peri-urban areas take place in the basin and, thus, water resources are used and also impacted significantly. Together with monitoring and measuring, hydrological modeling becomes key in characterizing, assessing, and predicting these uses and impacts, and developing strategies and practices to assure the long-term sustainability of cities. New developments and applications in hydrological modeling are constantly needed to represent the complex hydrological and biophysical interactions within urbanization and between urbanization and the basin. Moreover, such studies must account for a variety of global change manifestations (i.e., changes in climate, land use, and population) as well as sociopolitical issues while providing solid scientific bases for the planning and management of cities and water systems. Although very comprehensive and detailed models are currently under development, simple conceptual models are still needed as they facilitate our understanding of fundamental process and clearly illustrate the effects of the main attributes of the urbanization and the river basin.
For this Special Issue, we seek state-of-the art contributions from all over the world addressing a variety of challenges in hydrological modeling for urban water management. Topics of relevance for this issue include:
- Continuous simulation in urban water management;
- The application of hydrological modeling to the understanding and prediction of interactions between urbanization, surface water, and groundwater;
- Modeling of sustainable urban drainage systems and low-impact development practices as well as their effect over the entire flow regime;
- Modeling of water schemes for the provision of water in cities, such as those based on rain harvesting and graywater reuse;
- Urban water management and decision making in urban planning and management.
- Climate change impacts over urban water management and mitigation strategies.
- Water management and urban ecology;
- Hydrological modeling at the city scale;
- Evaluation of distributed modeling approaches.

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.
