Water Centric Sustainable Communities: Planning, Retrofitting, and Building the Next Urban Environment

English | 2010 | ISBN: 0470476087 | PDF | 622 Pages | 11.2 mb


The current literature compartmentalizes the complex issue of water and wastewater into its discrete components; technology, planning, policy, construction, economics, etc.? Considered from the perspective of sustainability, however, water in the urban environment must be approached as a single resource that can be continuously reused and recycled.? This book will be the first to capture all of the current work on this idea in a single, integrated, plan for designing the water-centric cities of the future.? From new construction to the retrofitting of existing systems, this book presents the case for a new urban relationship to water, one with a more sustainable?connection to?the environment and the hydrological cycle.? Through case studies of successfully planned and built systems around the world, the book will educate the reader about the need for a new approach to urban water management, and make the case that these changes are not only possible but imperative.
