The current literature compartmentalizes the complex issue of waterand wastewater into its discrete components; technology, planning,policy, construction, economics, etc.  Considered from theperspective of sustainability, however, water in the urbanenvironment must be approached as a single resource that can becontinuously reused and recycled.  This book will be the firstto capture all of the current work on this idea in a single,integrated, plan for designing the water-centric cities of thefuture.  From new construction to the retrofitting of existingsystems, this book presents the case for a new urban relationshipto water, one with a more sustainable connection to theenvironment and the hydrological cycle.  Through case studiesof successfully planned and built systems around the world, thebook will educate the reader about the need for a new approach tourban water management, and make the case that these changes arenot only possible but imperative.
