As drought, pollution, and sprawl make water increasingly scarce, here is the first comprehensive and authoritative handbook on water use and efficiency measures for all who are concerned about efficient water use. "Handbook of Water Use and Conservation: Homes, Landscapes, Businesses, Industries, Farms " (WaterPlow Press, ISBN 1931579075) by noted water conservation expert Amy Vickers is a 464-page hardcover handbook that describes water use characteristics, water audit steps, and over 100 efficiency measures for homes, landscapes, industries, businesses, and farms. Now in its second printing, the book provides estimated water savings and related benefits (including energy savings) and costs for the measures and offers many case studies. The book includes over 175 fact-filled tables, charts and photos, as well as eight appendices, a full glossary and an index. This definitive and state-of-the-art reference on water use, conservation, and efficiency measures is a "must have" for all professionals, libraries, and specialists concerned with efficient water use and management—managers, planners, engineers, architects, academicians, consultants, policymakers, landscapers, irrigators, builders, and conservationists.
