Sustainable Stormwater Management: A Landscape-Driven Approach to Planning and Design
Provides inspiring philosophical, technical, and aesthetic rationales for ‘putting the water in the landscape’ to create greener, more sustainable—and more humane—cities.
Mike Houck, director of Urban Greenspaces Institute
Nature devises ingenious systems for the management and delivery of water in all its phases. No additional infrastructure is required—the water systems are in place, naturally. But once the natural environment has been disrupted by human development, stormwater becomes an issue that requires intervention and ongoing management. Sustainable Stormwater Management, by leading expert Tom Liptan, provides landscape students and professionals with a green approach to landscape design. The hardworking book includes comprehensive information on how to design, install, and maintain a landscape for sustainable stormwater management. It addresses stormwater in the urban environment, relevant environmental and economic policies, and shares case studies of exemplary projects from around the world.
