Water management at BedZED - Some lessons
Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers:Engineering Sustainability
The Beddington zero fossil energy development (BedZED) in London, UK, is something of a modern icon in terms of assembling simultaneously on the same site new construction methods, the best of available ‘green’ technology and social engineering combined with new peri-urban lifestyles. The development also includes a number of ‘alternative’ water systems. As with many innovative and exploratory departures, however, not everything went according to plan. This paper describes the bold vision, highlights some of the issues and seeks to learn and disseminate lessons for the future, with special reference to the integrated water and wastewater services.
