Interests: water quality modeling; watershed management; urban stormwater management; nonpoint source pollution control; climate change adaptation
Water quality protection is always necessary and important. Massive efforts have made to improve water quality or to maintain its acceptable conditions. However, with more and more complex pollution emissions, the challenges become more severe. In addition, more uncertain weather systems strengthen the difficulties of water quality protection. This Special Issue seeks new water quality assessment and modelling methods to demonstrate water quality issues in watershed, rivers, reservoires, or urban drainage systems. It can be a focus on specific pollution sources or pollutants, which has been rarely discussed; an assessment of the effectiveness of customized water qauality control measures; or a historal data analysis to predict water quality trends or assess water quality under extreme weather conditions. New water quality model applications are welcome too. For example, the water quality assessement of natural-base solutions (NBS) or low impact development (LID), which includes the interactions between natural system. Total maximum daily loads (TMDLs), with the assimilative capacity of a waterbody, also represents a focal topic. Water quality is influenced by weather, external and internal pollution sources, and discharge conditions. Any contributions to the progress of water quality assessment and modeling are invited to submit to this Special Issue.

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 2600 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.
