This paper describes the causes and effects of urban-induced changes to the hydrology of a drainage basin. It emphasizes that effective solutions must not focus simply on the observed results (e.g., armoring of an eroded stream bank), but rather on the underlying causes (e.g., replacing the amount of water storage capacity in the soil layer that was lost by paving over the ground surface).
