Contents Notes
Historic paradigms of urban water/stormwater/wastewater management and drivers for change -- Urban sustainability concepts -- Planning and design for sustainable and resilient cities : theories, strategies, and best practices for green infrastructure -- Stormwater pollution abatement and flood control : stormwater as a resource -- Water demand and conservation -- Water reclamation and reuse -- Treatment and resource recovery unit processes -- Energy and urban water systems : towards net zero carbon footprint -- Restoring urban streams -- Planning and management of sustainable future communities -- Ecocities : evaluation and synthesis. This book departs from the traditional "clean water in, dirty water out" approach to establish a holistic paradigm for integrated water conservation and use in cities by embracing the three r's: reduce, reuse, recycle. This book provides the forum for lively discussion on the social concerns, technological challenges, planning issues, and economic woes putting up barriers to the reality of achieving a sustainable urban environment - and presents expert suggestions for overcoming them. This book combines landscape, water management, transportation, infrastructure, and triple bottom line assessment into one integrated system.
