The effect of urbanization on the hydrologic regime is discussed in regard to elimatic effect, runoff, annual runoff, maximum discharges, low-flow runoff, and sediment discharge. The author points out that in analyzing and applying foreign experience there are essential differences between city construction and utilization of water resources in socialist and capitalistic countries.
