What is the urban water cycle and how does it differ from the natural water cycle?

The natural water cycle is a continuing process of evaporation, condensation, precipitation and groundwater influence, as water moves naturally from the oceans and rivers to the atmosphere and land. This natural cycle still occurs in towns and cities but is impacted by people and development.

The urban water cycle is ‘man made’ created to provide drinking water to homes and businesses, to remove wastewater and sewage, and redirect stormwater away from homes and businesses and into our waterways.
