About the Book:
Integrated management of water resources is required to assure a long-term supply of water for various uses throughout the world. Aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) and other managed aquifer recharge (MAR) technologies are increasingly being used to meet peak demands, emergency supply (strategic storage), drought requirements, and a number of other storage needs. This book addresses the key issues of project planning, aquifer characterization, well design, system operation, and source-water quality and pretreatment. The lessons learned from existing ASR systems are presented to provide guidance for successful future implementation of the technologies.
