Worldwide survey collects information on artificial recharge of groundwater


  • Anonymous


A task committee on guidelines for artificial recharge of groundwater, organized under the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), has developed a questionnaire for a worldwide survey on artificial recharge. The questionnaire requests information on artificial recharge research, operating projects, results of practice, available publications, and contact personnel. The ASCE task committee plans to present the information in an ASCE publication and eventually means to develop a manual of standard guidelines for artificial recharge projects. So far, several hundred responses have been received from 39 foreign countries and from 48 states of the United States. In spite of the good response that has already been received, the questionnaire is still available to people who would be willing to provide information on their experiences or who would like to indicate the current status of planning for artificial recharge in their country or state.
