Appendix E
SELECTED BIBLIOGRAPHY ON INFRASTRUCTURE PERFORMANCE

This bibliography includes selected references addressing principles, methodology, policies, and historical background related to infrastructure performance definition, measurement, and management. The bibliography has been assembled to provide background and bases for discussion in the Building Research Board's study of infrastructure performance, focusing on infrastructure serving urban and metropolitan regions, as considered in the NCPWI 1988 report Fragile Foundations: transport (highways, transit, and airports), water (water supply and water resources), and waste (wastewater treatment, solid waste, and hazardous waste). Sewerage and stormwater management are included with wastewater treatment and solid waste. In addition references are included that provide perspective on issues of economic development, urban growth and decay, environmental quality, and technological evolution that have particular bearing on performance.
