Discover the Editor's Choice: From each issue of the leading journal Water Science & Technology the core team of editors select one outstanding paper to share across IWA Publishing platforms.  

IWA Publishing is pleased to announce that the 49th Editor's Choice Paper, chosen by Ivana Teodorovic, is now Open Access: 

Water quality impact from shrimp farming effluents in a tropical estuary

Jean-David Therrien, Niels Nicolaï and Peter A Vanrolleghem

https://doi.org/10.2166/wst.2020.559

Why was this paper chosen?

Finally, an easy to read paper connecting buzz words like AI, machine learning and digital twins to data-driven operation, maintenance and control of water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs). The paper gives the overall picture which serves the reader with a well-structured introduction to the topic, while it also gives sufficient starting points for dozens of PhD students for follow up research on all aspects of the long road from 'data to decision'. Although the focus of the paper is on WRRF's, the findings can be extended to a large extent to real pipelines: sewers and transport systems including control structures such as pumps, weirs and valves. An inspiring paper for a large audience!
