Water Supply Special Issue on:

Integrated Water Management for Enhanced Water Quality and Reuse to Create a Sustainable Future


Safe drinking water and sanitation are very important for the survival of human life. With the rapid proliferation of industries, growth in population and different forms of pollution, i.e. in water, air, soil and sediments, the living environment and the ecosystem is constantly polluted. In this context, integrating different water resources for enhanced water quality and reuse is important to solve the persisting problems and challenges in developing and the developed nations. Integrated water management offers environmental, economic and social benefits because it aims at maximizing the existing resources and prevents further depletion of the ecosystem.

This Special Issue contains papers on the topic of integrated management of water for a sustainable future, in association with the 13th International Conference on Challenges in Environmental Science and Engineering (CESE - 2020).
