Managed Aquifer Recharge Symposium – "Increasing Opportunities for Groundwater Storage"
Held January 25-26, 2011, in Irvine, California
The Water Research Foundation (WaterRF), Orange County Water District, and NWRI held a symposium on “Managed Aquifer Recharge” (MAR) to address the issues and needs involved with using surface water recharge facilities to supply aquifers with surface waters, including river water, recycled water, and storm water.
The symposium was specifically designed to provide a forum for discussions about managed aquifer recharge and to exchange information among practitioners and experts in the field.
