The integrated design of utilities for a new city in an arid zone


, : The integrated design of utilities for a new city in an arid zone. Urban Planning for Arid Zones: American Experiences and Directions: 167-176

Constructing a new settlement in arid regions may present special problems for utilities planning. There is often a complete lack of shared infrastructure, or else particular emphasis must be placed on careful water use. The concept of Modular Integrated Utilities Systems (MIUS) is well suited for application in arid areas. Each unit of MIUS is a small on site combined-package plant, providing heating and air conditioning, electricity, potable water treatment, and waste treatment and disposal.
