Managed aquifer recharge: an introduction

source: National Water Commission
"The report explains managed aquifer recharge, offers a description of the diverse drivers for MAR and presents new information on the economics of MAR in relation to alternative sources of supply. The authors deal with how to establish a MAR project, outline considerations for government regulators and look at MAR opportunities in an integrated urban water management context. The report highlights the barriers to the wider adoption of MAR. These include lack of certainty around rights and entitlements, and the need for clear and nationally consistent assessment and approval approaches."
