Presentation by Rob Gailey, R. M. Gailey Consulting Hydrogeologist PC on the evaluation of the potential for a substantial MAR program in the South American and Cosumnes groundwater subbasins of California.
Using managed aquifer recharge (MAR) to improve stressed groundwater resources in arid regions requires conditions that are favorable for achieving large-scale operations. Substantial amounts of water, land and funding are required. Cooperation among broad stakeholder groups is also necessary. Moreover, scaleup from site-specific projects to a program of many projects requires an efficient site selection and design process facilitated by an understanding of the local hydrogeology. This presentation summarizes ongoing investigation to evaluate the potential for a substantial MAR program by a consortium of stakeholders in the South American and Cosumnes groundwater subbasins of California.
