Managed Aquifer Recharge

Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) refers to storing water in natural underground aquifers when it is plentiful and available. If the water is left in the ground to revitalize a depleted groundwater system MAR is sometimes referred to as Aquifer Recharge (AR). The artificially stored water can also be recovered and used when it’s needed, a process called Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR). Whether it’s industrial, municipal or watershed projects—we help our clients evaluate the feasibility and potential of MAR. If conditions are favorable, we collaborate with water users to design and implement MAR programs. During permitting, we coordinate with regulators and the water user to permit and develop MAR monitoring and reporting programs that meet permit requirements and the owner’s needs.
