Groundwater Banking/Recharge in Action
September 30, 2016 | By Taylor |
The Orange County Water District in California is regarded as the most technically advanced water district in the world. And for good reason.
The Water District uses an incredibly advanced purification system to purify the counties water, but even more impressive is what happens after the water is purified. After purification, the water is injected into the groundwater basin to:
(1) prevent seawater intrusion into the aquifer, and
(2) recharge the groundwater basin
This is the future of all groundwater management in California.
