Soft cover. 327 pp. Fine condition. Drained by a half-dozen major watersheds, cut by a network of deep ravines, fronting on a Great Lake and home to massive water supply, sewerage and flood-control works, Toronto is a city dominated by water. The twenty-nine essays in this book explore everything from watershed initiatives our connection to the waterfront, and the filling of our ravines with waste to rainwater harvesting, Hurricane Hazel's long-term impact and a new approach to managing stormwater.
