Design With Water free pdf Design With Water provides a comprehensive primer to planning and design to achieve sustainable water resources--often called water security-- applicable to architecture, regional planning, storm water engineering, and landscape design. It focuses upon management of watersheds as natural and designed hydrologic systems to optimize conservation and improvement of water as a resource. It compiles illustrated technical data for rainwater collection, storage, and management appropriate for both arid and flooding conditions. Special conditions of coastal flood hazard mitigation are also included because many similar principles and techniques apply.
