Price (1992) argues for a change from the sewerage principle to the ecological principle of urban planning.

The sewerage principle concentrates on spending downstream of the problem, whereas an ecological principle requires investment upstream. With a sewerage principle we are creating problem-management systems, whereas with an ecological principle we are actually planning for promotive and preventative health and sustainability. A sewerage system focuses on the past whereas ecology focuses on the future.
