Water is an important factor to change the engineering properties of geotechnical media, which is a common problem that must be faced in engineering construction. At the same time, the interaction between water and geotechnical medium is an important part of geological hazard prevention. In human engineering activities, excavation can lead to geological disasters such as quicksand, water inrush and subsidence. Under extreme climate conditions, rainfall can lead to debris flow, landslide, leachate leaching and other ecological environmental problems. For soft rock, karst, swelling soil and collapsible soil, water is their natural enemy. Therefore, the struggle between human engineering activities and water is ongoing. In order to solve the above engineering problems, scientists in the field of geotechnical engineering have carried out a lot of research on soil–rock interaction, soil–water interaction, pollutant migration and other aspects, and achieved fruitful results. However, the engineering geological environment and human engineering activities are constantly changing, and new problems are constantly emerging. The basic theory, disaster mechanism, prevention technology and other problems need to be improved. Discussing these challenges, finding solutions, and presenting the latest results are the main purposes of this Special Issue.
The geological disasters caused by engineering activities have attracted much attention, and the interaction between water and geotechnical medium is the key problem to cause the disasters. The scope of the discussion includes but is not limited to (1) interaction between water and soil in slope engineering; (2) interaction of water and rock in underground engineering; (3) migration of leachate from waste slag; (4) effect of mining on groundwater; (5) effect of hydrochemical environment on geotechnical medium; (6) karst, debris flow, water inrush, etc.

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.
