Abstract / Description of output
In this chapter, Himansu S. Mishra, Simon Bell, Anna Wilczynska and Jekaterina Balicka look at the growing popularity of combining storm and other ecological water treatment systems with recreational aspects in urban wetland parks. It starts with a review of the problems facing urban areas in terms of storm water management and urban drainage, leading to extensive sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) and special storm water wetland parks and how they can be used for recreation. The risks of their use for health (e.g. if using bio-remediation to clean polluted water) are covered, and an inspirational selection of projects are introduced and evaluated using the criteria defined in Chapter 10.
