Managed Aquifer Recharge

Managed aquifer recharge (MAR) involves adding treated effluent into the aquifer. Integrating MAR into water resource management impacts water quantity and water quality. HSI utilizes superior knowledge/expertise, regulatory relationships, practical applications, and operational experience to ensure positive impacts on both water quantity and quality that are in the interest of the client and within state agency regulations. HSI recommends the best suited methodology whether it is direct surface recharge, direct subsurface recharge, or a combination of surface-subsurface recharge based on site location, budget and client goals.
