Reusing the Resource, Water Management (978-0966678321)

Reusing the Resource, Water Management (2007) by Carol Steinfeld & David Del Porto, published by New Society Publishers
Product Information

Water has been described as the 21st century oil. Water shortages, water quality and water rights are hot-button issues at the local, national and international levels. Climate change, population growth and contamination from industry, farms and human settlements have dramatically impacted water supplies and disrupted natural nutrient cycles. Strategic wastewater management will be a critical tool in protecting this valuable but threatened resource.

Reusing the Resource is a comprehensive guide to using plants to stabilize, clean, filter and reuse wastewater, while simultaneously eliminating expensive and polluting sewers and septic systems. The book profiles more than 30 successful ecological wastewater recycling systems that save money, protect public and environmental health, and provide plant-based fuel, fiber, construction materials, habitat and landscapes. It details the pros and cons of various systems, and provides tips for designers, regulators and builders. Case studies include:

  • a greenhouse-enclosed wastewater aquaculture system

  • a regional wastewater-recycling plant

  • a city's wastewater-treatment wetland

  • graywater planters.

This book is a must-read for engineers, landscape designers, clean water advocates and property owners. Packed with practical ideas and featuring beautiful full-color photos and inspiring, easy-to-read information, Reusing the Resource proves that the solution to water pollution is to grow it away!
