Managed Aquifer Recharge with recycled water (part 3) Economics and experiences

Seven case studies of MAR for water recycling are presented, three of which use infiltration techniques for recharge while the remaining four employ well injection methods for recharge. Economic assessment of six of the seven case studies was carried out (the seventh is still under development). Case study locations where; i) Infiltration basins, ... more

About this Project

AWRCE Impediments to MARRO

To further investigate clogging and changes in water quality during MAR, a research project was divided into two related field investigations to cover the major issues that were initially identified as impediments to MAR on a national scale. The first component focused on MAR via an infiltration gallery located in predominantly medium-grained Aeoli... more
