«The human right on potable water is fundamental to life and health. Provision of sufficient and safe potable water is an indispensable condition of realization of all human rights», – so is fixed in the United Nations documents.
The “Water Supply and Sanitary Technique” Journal was founded in 1913 at the first stages of formation of water supply practice in Russia. For about a century, the Journal has been struggling for the prestige of the branch, recognition of its importance, dealing with the most important scientific and technical issues in the field of water supply and water disposal, water treatment, heating, ventilation and air conditioning. Results of scientific studies and progressive technical solutions published in the Journal have favored a full-scale introduction of new efficient technologies and designs into municipal services, industrial and rural construction.
The journal is included into the List of scientific reviewed publications that publish basic scientific findings presented in dissertations for Ph. D. and Doctor of Science degrees (the List of the Russian journals included into the foreign data bases) RF Ministry of Education and Science Letter of December 1st, 2015, No. 13-6518).
The Journal covers the following scientific issues:
water supply: designs of facilities and flow charts of water treatment for domestic and industrial purposes; methods of softening, demineralization and desalinization, conditioning of water, production of superpure water; methods of hydraulic and technical and economic calculation of water supply systems for large industrial enterprises of cities and agricultural objects.
wastewater treatment and sewerage: theoretical fundamentals of wastewater and sludge treatment methods; new technological schemes, types and designs of facilities for mechanical, biochemical and physicochemical treatment of wastewater in various branches of industry; treatment of high concentrated wastewater and advanced treatment of runoffs; principles and methods of secondary and consecutive use of industrial wastewater; methods of improvement of the existing technique of treatment and utilization of wastewater sludge;
use of water in complete cycles without wastes discharge into reservoirs;
waterworks in water industry;
intake, use and protection against pollution and exhaustion of ground water;
automation and management of systems of water industry and power saving;
heat supply, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning.
