"In this distinctive book . . . [Lewis D. Solomon] discusses the historical development and regulation of U.S. water resources and provides a comprehensive overview of current challenges, such as aging water infrastructures, conservation efforts, dwindling natural supplies, population growth, funding, security, technological advances, and wastewater treatment. Solomon identifies future trends like project privatizations and increases in partnerships between private and public organizations, and offers advice about how to fine-tune these partnerships so they are win-win situations . . . Because the information here may be hard to find quickly by other means, the book will most benefit urban planners and policymakers. The content is illuminating and will appeal to readers with an interest in civic affairs."
