This accessible guide is the most up-to-date book on the market dealing with alternate water collection, with a special focus on rainwater harvesting in the urban environment." "Numerous case studies outline the process of water collection from landscape, residential, commercial, industrial, school, park and municipal systems. Other accessible (and affordable) alternate sources include cooling-tower bleed-off water, air conditioning condensate, graywater, and fog collection. Design for Water provides the necessary guidelines to set up passive harvesting techniques to anyone making development decisions - engineers, landscape architects, developers, policy-makers, planners and land-owners."--Jacket." ;
