Planning, Retrofitting, and Building the Next Urban Environment

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.
