This easily accessible reference is aimed at engineers, planners, and managers, teaching both the theoretical and practical aspects of urban water management. 1986 (0 471-82914-5) 328 pp. A Guide to Site and Environmental Planning Third Edition Harvey M. Rubenstein "Perhaps the strongest feature of the book is the inclusive, comprehensive, and logical analysis within each of the chapters … All in all, I can highly recommend this book to anyone engaged in site planning, or interested in site plans developed by others." —Landscape Planning This Third Edition incorporates pertinent research of the past decade and presents an approach to design based on factual information that enables creative talent to be used to its utmost advantage. Chapters follow phases used in the development of a site plan and include extensive information on: site selection, resource analysis, land use, storm drainage, alignment of horizontal and vertical curves, specifications, sports facilities and play-grounds, rooftop gardens, residential development concepts, and much more. 1987 (0 471-85033-0) 410 pp. Infrastructure Engineering and Management Neil Grigg Here is the first technical and management book to focus on solutions to complex, large-scale problems involving major infrastructure projects.
