SUSTAINABLE EXUMAS (7 of 12), 8 July 2011, Herbert Dreiseitl

Ecological Waterscapes: Site-responsive interventions of urban hydrology / Water is a beautiful resource for all life forms and for pleasure and enjoyment, especially in places like the Exumas. But water also currently presents a frightening challenge, that will only increase in the future. With the reality of critical water shortages and sometimes poor water quality management, the wasting of water resources is a luxury that few can afford. One option is to integrate, store, and recycle water that can then be upgraded and reused on the islands. Bringing water into the public realm requires multifunctional arrangements and provides an opportunity to raise public awareness of water issues. This may hopefully lead to more ecological waterscapes in the future. Waterscapes provide powerful narratives and realistic solutions that contribute to a better future.
