About this book

Drawing on lessons learned in the past, this book presents a new approach to the rehabilitation and sustainable management of water resources. The book looks at current approaches, such as restoration of primeval fish populations as a new focus for river and harbour restoration. New data on declines in property values from contaminated lakes are presented to assist in planning restoration projects. The book also outlines sustainable alternatives for coastal communities who want to change their water and sewage systems to control costs.
