Water and Building Landscape
Chapter 6 looks at how we can manage water and build landscapes that will be more sustainable. Although British Columbia is known for its abundance of water, as the population increases the need to reduce water use as well as learn to use it in smarter ways has become critical. Topics include stormwater management, rainwater collection for toilet flushing and irrigation, water metering, green roofs and the role of urban agriculture and community gardens in sustainable communities.
