ASPECTS OF HYDROLOGICAL EFFECTS OF URBANIZATION

Urbanization both alters and complicates the natural hydrological cycle. However, the effects are often not consistent, but depend on the nature and magnitude of the urban influence. The effects of urbanization on four aspects of the hydrologic cycle are examined: low flow total runoff infiltration and groundwater recharge. Supporting data and a selected bibliography are provide. Inherent in the alteration of the hydrologic cycle by urbanization is the contamination by urban wastes, and the consequent pollution of the water resource.
