With contributions from foremost experts and scholars, the Handbook of Water Sensitive Planning and Design pushes the frontiers of standard water management toward new directions, directing views outward to the exciting and incompletely mapped regions of true interdisciplinary water sensitive planning and design. Divided into two thematic sections, the handbook presents water as a design and planning element in landscape architecture and presents current research on the subjects of stormwater management, wetlands park creation, riparian zones, and watershed management.
