9780125540100: Floodplain Management: Ecologic and Economic Perspectives (Environmental Intelligence Unit)

Floods are of great interest during periods of intense flooding, but floodplain management is not well-practiced and attempts at such management are often a source of both social conflict and harmful ecological effects. When economic and ecologic concerns collide, effective floodplain management requires that these conflicts be resolved. Floodplain Management sheds light on the reasons behind these conflicts and points to solutions. This concise and up-to-datevolume reviews the historical development of floodplain management policy and presents scenarios that future floodplain management may follow. Any engineer, urban planner, environmentalist, policy maker, floodplain manager, or average citizen concerned about rational floodplain policy will profit from a thorough reading of Floodplain Management.

Provides a recent history of ecologic and economic interests and its effects on the general public and the owners of floodplain properties
Includes description and analysis of all major reports that have been released since 1992
