      How Urbanization Affects the Water Cycle Why is the Water Cycle Important? An educational program for land use decision makers that addresses the relationship between land use and natural resource protection. The water cycle, also known as the hydrological cycle, is the continuous exchange of water between land, waterbodies, and the atmosphere. Introduction Thesis statement and Purpose statement Nowadays, the development of urbanization, which causes concentrated human population and habitat in small areas, has occurred at a very quick pace. Urban standard of living has risen roughly on the basis of technical innovations and changes in social structure.

      Higher water temperatures and pollutants flushed into water systems from strong rain events also degrade water quality and threaten ecosystem stability. Urbanization, Water, and Climate Change Cities, even though they consume a much smaller portion of water when compared to agriculture (70 percent vs. only 8 percent), are where most people live. urbanization.
