Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Utilities in charge of the management of urban water networks are facing new challenges in their real-time operation because of limited water resources, intensive energy requirements, growing population, costly and aging infrastructure, increasingly stringent regulations, and increased attention toward the environmental impact of water use. Such challenges force network managers to improve the methods and techniques that they use for real-time monitoring and control.
The Guest Editor is seeking papers that present new approaches for the real-time monitoring and control of urban water networks based on advanced technologies of automation, computer science, and telecommunications to largely improve their efficiency in terms of water management, energy consumption, water loss minimization, and water quality guarantees. Papers illustrating the methods applied to real-life pilot demonstrations are highly encouraged to clear show the impact in regional networks (Spain).
