It is not the basic resource, water, that is changing but man’s influence on this resource that is producing an ever-increasing change. The effects of man on natural patterns of water supply in the case of urbanization may be large inadvertent. But man’s intentional activities may improve the environment for either more direct benefit or greater aesthetic advantage. Man’s influence can improve his environment, particularly with respect to the intelligent influence on the natural patterns of supply by means of weather modification.
