The technology of augmenting groundwater resources artificially. In such technology, water available above ground surface, say in a river or lake, is injected through wells (called "artificial recharge wells") into an underlying aquifer. Water can be recharged into a phreatic aquifer also through ponds, (referred to as "infiltration ponds"). Surface water is allowed to infiltrate through the bottom of such ponds, travel through the unsaturated zone, eventually reaching an underlying phreatic aquifer.
Putting water back into groundwater storage from surface water supplies such as irrigation, or induced infiltration from streams or wells. Includes aquifer storage and retrieval (ASR).
Tekopohjaveden muodostaminen Konstgjord grundvattenbildning Introduction of surface water into an underground aquifer through recharge wells.
Augmentation of natural replenishment of ground-water storage by some method of construction, spreading of water, or by pumping water directly into an aquifer.
The deliberate act of adding water to a groundwater aquifer by means of a recharge project; also, the water so added. Artificial recharge can be accomplished via injection wells, spreading basins, or instream projects. See also incidental recharge, natural recharge, recharge. base flow Streamflow derived from groundwater seepage into the stream.
The addition of water to a groundwater reservoir by human activity, such as putting surface water into dug or constructed spreading basins or injecting water through wells.
an process where water is put back into ground-water storage from surface-water supplies such as irrigation, or induced infiltration from streams or wells.
The addition of surface water to a groundwater reservoir by human activity, such as putting surface water into recharge basins. (See also: groundwater recharge and recharge basin.)
The addition of water to the ground water reservoir by man's activities, such as irrigation or induced infiltration from streams or wells.
The unnatural addition of surface waters to groundwater. Recharge could result from reservoirs, storage basins, leaky canals, direct injection of water into an aquifer, or by spreading water over a large land surface.
The process of artificially increasing the volume of water in the saturated zone by means of spreading water on the surface, injection wells, or inducing infiltration from streams or lakes.
The addition of water to the groundwater reservoir by human activities, such as irrigation or induced infiltration from streams, wells, or spreading basins.
