Living Near Urban Lakes: Your Guide to Everyday Living in Urban Lake Communities

A new way of thinking about water in the city

Living Near Urban Lakes: Your Guide to Everyday Living in Urban Lake Communities will help you think about water in ways you may never have considered before.

Have you ever wondered what happens to all that water when it rains, or the snow melts?

Some of the moisture is absorbed by the soil in your yard. And the rest of this "stormwater" ... it flows as runoff - down hills, across yards, over streets, down storm sewers, and into your local stormwater lake, river or stream.

In this book, Sarah Weaver Kipp, author of the highly praised book, On the Living Edge: Your Guide for Waterfront Living, explains the "ins and outs": of stormwater, and what it means to live near an urban lake. Whether you live in a house which fronts water or a kilometer or two away from your neighbourhood lake, you'll find this book a helpful reference for protecting the quality of water in your neighbourhood.

Topics Include:

  • Stormwater lakes in your community
  • Watersheds and living in the city
  • Buying property near an urban lake
  • Landscaping and maintaining your yard
  • Native plants for all types of gardens
  • Pets and living with wildlife
  • Recreation and urban lakes
  • Washing vehicles
  • Draining hot tubs and pools
