Sustainable beneficial use of water as renewable resource to meet demands and ensuring its quality will be the most important and challenging issue confronting human population in most parts of the world. Efficient and economic management of surface and groundwater quality and quantity is essential to survival. The spatial and temporal availability of water in terms of space and time depends on vagaries of nature as well as human interventions. The quality of water available is also dependent on natural processes as well as anthropogenic activities. In addition, quality of water is affected by chemical and geochemical processes and interactions, sometimes too complex to model and predict.
Therefore, this special issue invites important original contributions to all aspects of managing water resources in terms of quantity and quality, both regional scale and local scale. Topics may include but are not limited to: mathematical simulation and decision model development and validation, new experimental results improving the understanding and reliable prediction of complex chemical processes including reactive species, application of artificial intelligence tools in designing effective management strategies and monitoring networks, application of regional scale management methodologies to polluted sites, e.g., complex mine sites, coastal aquifer management, unknown contaminant source characterization, management of water resources as an inventory e.g., for a systems of multipurpose reservoirs, incorporation and improvement in the prediction of meteorological droughts to improve long-term water management, water sensitive urban design, improving the remediation of pollution using new technologies, and case studies related to water and environmental management. All submitted manuscripts will go through rigorous peer review process.

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. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health 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 2300 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.
