Disaster driven relocation is most often associated with coastal and riverine cities being inundated by rising waters, causing temporary or permanent displacement. However, relocation may be driven by other phenomena in imperilling critical resources for communities. In these cases, relocation unfolds in the way of slow attrition rather than an unexpected disaster. In the Southwestern United States, this critical resource is water.
