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 captures 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, the authors present the case for a new urban relationship to water, one with a more sustainable connection to the environment and the hydrological cycle.
