Responses to declining water levels so far include reducing the amount of groundwater abstracted for public water supply, changing abstraction patterns to limit take from sensitive areas that affect wetlands and locating groundwater replenishment
It pumps treated freshwater into the groundwater to recharge the aquifer, hence the program's name: "The Groundwater Replenishment
Natural groundwater recharge is the predominant source of groundwater replenishment
in almost all basins.
The limitations of these outdated facilities thus present a serious technological hindrance for water reuse applications requiring nitrogen removal, including groundwater replenishment
In 2007 California's Orange County Water District (OCWD) introduced the world's largest IPR operation, a project known as the Groundwater Replenishment
System that produces 70 million gallons of highly treated wastewater per day.
With this track record, OCWD launched the Groundwater Replenishment
System (GWRS) in 2008 to replace Water Factory 21.
Southern California agencies, for example, have embraced recycled wastewater as part of their water portfolio as evidenced by the Orange County Water District's Groundwater Replenishment
Another environmental benefit of the pavement is its contribution to more rapid groundwater replenishment
It's a guaranteed supply of water," says Shivaji Deshmukh, the program manager for the Orange County Groundwater Replenishment
System--the system responsible for making the water from restroom potties suitable for use in kitchen pots.
CA, Groundwater Replenishment
System (GWR) has been selected as the Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement for 2009 by the American Society of Civil Engineers.
For its efforts at managing sparse water supplies in Southern California, the Orange County Water District will receive the Water Management award for its groundwater replenishment
The design will include environmentally responsive or "green" design components within the overall landscape strategy to include harvested wood, rainwater collection and groundwater replenishment
