    The buildings and structures of a city can influence both climate and water availability. For example, large areas of concrete in cities such as Phoenix, Arizona, tend to create “heat islands,” where the daytime temperature can be 10 degrees warmer than surrounding areas. In addition, large areas of concrete prevent water from percolating into the soil and divert it to areas of high runoff during heavy rainstorms. Built environments also displace native species of plants and animals that were living in the area.
