Proceedings of an international conference on sustaining urban water resources in the 21st century, held in Malmo, Sweden, September 7-12, 1997. Sponsored by the Engineering Foundation, Inc.
This collection contains 36 papers on solutions to problems associated with stormwater management programs that sustain and enhance the urban water environment. Experts in engineering, sciences, planning, land development, and landscape architecture describe successful sustainable urban water resources projects from around the world. Many papers focus on cases where a municipal or private development project resulted in a clearly demonstrable improvement in urban water resources. Other papers address the science and technology of urban runoff flow and quality management practices. Details of how the projects were designed and implemented within the context of the regulatory environment, and engineering and natural sciences are detailed, as well as design guidelines for stormwater management facilities.
