Urban Water Journal aims to provide a forum for the research and professional communities dealing with water-related and water-based systems in the urban environment. Particular emphasis is placed on defining the practical outcomes of sustainable development and on documenting and analysing the mutual interrelationships and interactions between the individual water systems and urban water bodies (including groundwater). The journal encourages the increasing importance of integrated approaches to solve the numerous pressing problems in urban water engineering. Most of the current water, environmental and infrastructure journals cover some aspects of the urban water scene. However, none of them are solely dedicated to this fast growing topic and none emphasise the importance of integration and interrelationships, considering urban water as an entity with all its internal and external interactions. In this respect, the journal aims at filling a gap in the provision of international, scientific and professional journals. The journal focuses on the water-based infrastructure in the city; namely potable water, sewerage and drainage. Also included are the network peripheries; the customer/consumer, point-of-use and point-of-discharge technologies (e.g. recycling, source controls) and the end-of-pipe treatment systems for potable and wastewater where they relate to and interact with their respective networks. Further, the impact of the networks on the water environment (water resources, groundwater, and watercourses) and vice versa is included. Papers discussing issues of utilisation of groundwater aquifers for urban areas are particularly appreciated. Additionally, papers concerned with water planning (including the interactions of urban water amenities with city planning and landscaping), design, analysis, informatic support (GIS/CAD), operational management and associated economics are all welcome. A strong emphasis is placed on data needs, data acquisition and processing, quantification of uncertainty and assurance of data quality and robustness. Formerly Urban Water.
