Water cycle management relates to all planning, strategy development, operational and tactical decisions to optimize the water cycle to satisfy human or environmental objectives. It is used in different organizations to mean management of a sub-set of the whole water cycle. In Australia, it has been adopted to encompass the fresh water to sewage disposal cycle.[1][2] Elsewhere, it refers to a more holistic view of the water cycle.[3][4]
