Recharge Enhancement

Overview of Studies

The majority of water that recharges aquifers enters through recharge features, like caves, sinkholes, and enlarged fractures in creek beds. This means that the amount of water that enters aquifers can be increased by cleaning out sediment and debris from these openings. Increasing recharge means groundwater resources could refill at faster rates during flooding events.
