The Hydrologic Cycle It's true, the water we use today has been around for hundreds of millions of years, and the amount available probably hasn't changed very much. Water moves around the world, changes forms, is taken in by plants and animals, but never really disappears. It "travels" in a large, continuous cycle. We call this the Hydrologic Cycle ("hydro" means water).
