Aquifer garage and restoration (ASR) is a approach in which water is recharged via wells to an aquifer and extracted for necessary use at a few later time from an identical wells. ASR is proposed as a tremendous water garage part within the entire Everglades recovery Plan (CERP), built together via the U.S. military Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the South Florida Water administration District (SFWMD). The plan might use the higher Floridan aquifer (UFA) to shop up to 1.7 billion gallons according to day (gpd) (6.3 million m3/day) of extra floor water and shallow groundwater in the course of rainy classes for restoration in the course of seasonal or longer-term dry sessions, utilizing approximately 333 wells. ASR represents approximately one-fifth of the complete expected rate of the CERP.

Aquifer garage and restoration within the entire Everglades recovery Plan examines pilot venture from the point of view of adaptive evaluation, i.e., the level to which the pilot initiatives will give a contribution to method realizing which could enhance layout and implementation of recovery venture elements. This record is a critique of the pilot tasks and comparable studies.

3 Water Quality Issues Motivation Although aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) has been used as a means of supplementing water supplies in Florida for over a decade, the unprecedented scale of the ASR program proposed in the CERP raises a wide range of water quality issues that go beyond the concerns associated with local ASR projects. In part, these issues arise because of the chemical diversity of the water bodies and aquifers involved in ASR across the large geographic range of the CERP. The issues also arise because ASR water may be used for agriculture, for augmenting water inflows to natural ecosystems in the Everglades, and, indirectly, to supplement municipal (drinking water) supplies.

Yes, a sampling and analysis program for water recovered from ASR systems will be developed and implemented to address these concerns. Note that the details of this plan necessarily require that we await the results of the source-water quality characterization program to ensure that parameters of concern are addressed. • If the pilot studies will not provide the information needed to assess suitability of recovered water for the intended receptors, what other studies are planned to fill the gaps?
