By Ann L. Riley
With urban development on the rise, city design with an environmental component is sorely needed, and award-winning hydrologist Ann L. Riley knows how. This book presents the author’s thirty years of practical experience managing long-term stream and river restoration projects in heavily degraded urban environments. Riley provides a level of detail only a hands-on design practitioner would know, including insights on project design, institutional and social context of successful projects, and how to avoid costly and time-consuming mistakes. Restoring Neighborhood Streams gives better solutions for restoration projects, as well as the tools to build better cities in the long term.
