The Special Issue on Water Quality and Health that will be published in the journal Water focuses on global and regional human and ecological health consequences of degradation of water quality in natural and engineered environments. The purpose of the Special Issue is to provide a unique platform for scientists and engineers, who are specializing in diverse fields of this research area, to share and present their findings in an integrated multidisciplinary venue. The issue will provide a venue to exchange ideas and share information on state-of-the-art research for the interpretation, analysis and management of health effects of global and regional water quality degradation due to a multitude of impacts. In doing so, in addition to dissemination of most current scientific knowledge, the purpose is to break the language and methodological barriers that exist between the diverse research disciplines that are involved in this field and expose the readership to the needs and the tools that are available in this area of research. Our goal is to disseminate research findings without the boundaries of compartmentalized disciplines. This integrative and multidisciplinary goal is planned to be a unique feature of this Special Issue.
