This review on Sustainability covers selected journal articles and conferences papers published in 2011 and is divided into the following sections:

• Sustainable water and wastewater utilities

• Sustainability in wastewater treatment

• Life cycle assessment (LCA) applications

• Sustainability and energy in wastewater industry, climate change, and water reuse

• Sustainability rating system

The stormwater and green infrastructure (GI) described the current development in four categories: (1) new studies of GI and low impact development (LID) system performance; (2) GI/LID planning assessments; (3) macro-scale hydrologic and hydraulic modeling of GI/LID systems; and (4) social implications of GI/LID systems. The sustainability in wastewater treatment reviewed wastewater as a resource, wastewater treatment, and wastewater treatment plant carbon and energy footprint.
