The developments of small cities and towns have become the future focus and trend of urbanization process in developing countries. The problems of water & wastewater systems and sludge management have to be addressed to avoid further negative environmental influences at the same time. Water environment pollution is also more serious in small cities and towns in China nowadays. Therefore, water and wastewater systems in small cities and towns should be deserved more attention with promising future in the world.
