Synopsis

Safer Beaches: Planning, Design, and Operation offers a systematic, practical approach to planning, designing, renovating, and operating all types of beaches. This authoritative reference covers the broad topics that beach managers, lifeguards, administrators, and beach enthusiasts need to know, such as safety for nonswimming beaches and swimming beaches, water quality and beach maintenance, and funding. And it delves into the finer details that will help you balance safety and beachgoers' enjoyment.



Safer Beaches provides something rarely found in other aquatic books: practices in beach management and protection. It uses a needs-analysis approach to help you identify programming and activities that will maximize people's experience at the beach. This practical resource will help you



* understand the planning, design, building, and operational concepts and put them to use right away;



* take the guesswork out of beach management by guiding you step by step through the decisions and considerations necessary for successful operations; and



* avoid dangerous and costly mistakes during the planning and design stages of both swimming and nonswimming beaches.



Written by a leading aquatic professional and many influential contributors, with visually rich and instructive photos and illustrations, Safer Beaches supplies you with the latest information about innovations in beach design, technology, and building methods. It thoroughly explores every key aspect of planning, designing, and operating a beach, providing you with many examples and photos to give you a clear picture of the entire process. In its expansive coverage, it explores new territory in signage, risk management, and accessibility. And it places a heavy emphasis on safety, with five chapters devoted to separate safety topics.



Safer Beaches is an essential resource for all who have anything to do with managing beaches. It will help you be more effective in your job, and it will help beachgoers enjoy their recreational experiences to the fullest.
