Water Reuse Special Issue on

Sustainable Management of Urban Stormwater Runoff



This Special Issue, titled ‘Sustainable Management of Urban Stormwater Runoff’ offers valuable insights by addressing the urgent challenges posed by climate change, specifically the shifting rainfall patterns that lead to increased flooding and drought risks in urban areas. As climate change continues and urbanization expands, the imperative to effectively manage stormwater and safeguard water quality becomes paramount, categorized into six key aspects: [1] Sustainable, [2] Techniques, [3] Optimizing, [4] Rainwater, [5] Management, and [6] Strategies. This issue explores innovative approaches to gain insights into stormwater processes, comparing field measurements and computer modeling to further support Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 11 and 13. Additionally, it evaluates the impact of sustainable nature-based solutions (NbS) through Low Impact Development (LID) practices on controlling runoff, mitigating risks, and managing costs for resilient urban drainage systems. This Special Issue aligns with essential directions for raising awareness, enhancing capacity, and formulating appropriate policies and regulations, thereby planting the seeds of change towards making cities more resilient to climate-induced challenges.

We are pleased to invite you to submit a manuscript to Water Reuse for peer review and possible publication in a Special Issue entitled Sustainable Management of Urban Stormwater Runoff.


Relevant topics include:

  • Strengthening urban resilience to climate-induced water challenges: case study approaches for stormwater systems
  • Comparative analysis of field measurements and computer models for stormwater system behavior with uncertainty quantification
  • Resource-efficient stormwater system design: integrating data-driven AI for optimization
  • Exploring sustainable stormwater practices, SDGs, and NbS impact on runoff control, water quality, and cost implications
  • Advancing community engagement and awareness in stormwater management


Key dates:

Deadline for manuscript submission: September 15th, 2024

Expected publication: Articles will be published online as soon as possible after acceptance.


Guest Editors:

Saeid Eslamian, Isfahan University of Technology, Iran

Saeid Okhravi, Institute of Hydrology of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, Slovakia

Alberto Innocenti, University of Southern Denmark, Denmark
