The potential contributions of impermeable surface water discharges to urban water resource management strategies are considered through the development and analysis of an urban water cycle (UWC) study approach. The structure, outputs and benefits of a UWC study are described and a test application of the methodological approach is made to the Eastside development area within the city of Birmingham, UK. Water demand and usage rates for the proposed 170ha regeneration area are quantified and potentially significant savings identified assuming re-use of stormwater runoff which would considerably facilitate a more sustainable future urban water cycle strategy.
