Anthony Daus authors new publication water resources guidance document on ASR


Water supply security is becoming an increasingly critical issue worldwide with expanding populations and impacts of climate change. The Caribbean region is particularly susceptible to drinking water supply concerns due to rising sea levels, changing precipitation patterns, and water quality degradation. Aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) and managed aquifer recharge (MAR) offers important tools to increase freshwater storage at a nominal cost. However, for these types of projects to be successful, proper physical, social and economic conditions must be present.   This report provides an overview of various ASR and MAR schemes and discusses key factors to consider when evaluating the siting, design and funding of these water supply projects. A decision tree with a step-by-step process is provided that will assist the project manager in assessing the viability of specific projects
