ZERO RUNOFF

This group of seven articles leaves to the courts the continuing battle over water rights, and takes to the field for a panoramic view of the design and management of moving waters, all involving approaches to zero runoff. The account begins in England with a description of comprehensive stream-management in a new community; then gets down to small-scale grit and gravel, to crushed stone and permeable pavements that encourage rain to soak in where it falls. The scale expands to Texas and an 18,000-acre new town site which is so flat that which way the land drains depends on which way the wind blows. Lake salvage operations are reviewed -- what to do when all else has failed and the lake or loch has filled with sediment.
