Aquifer garage and restoration (ASR) is a procedure during which water is recharged via wells to an aquifer and extracted for important use at a few later time from a similar wells. ASR is proposed as an important water garage part within the complete Everglades recovery Plan (CERP), constructed together by means of 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 in line with 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 classes, utilizing approximately 333 wells. ASR represents approximately one-fifth of the whole anticipated price of the CERP.

Aquifer garage and restoration within the complete Everglades recovery Plan examines pilot venture from the point of view of adaptive review, i.e., the level to which the pilot initiatives will give a contribution to procedure realizing which may increase layout and implementation of recovery undertaking parts. This record is a critique of the pilot tasks and comparable studies.

Biodegradation of disinfection byproducts as a potential removal process during aquifer storage recovery.

In turn, this could stimulate methylation of mercury and reductive dissolution of mineral phases, possibly increasing the dissolved concentrations of heavy metals, arsenic and radionuclides in the water being stored for recovery. Although the alkalinity of the source water is likely to be moderately high, and the waters thus should be well-buffered with respect to pH, production of carbon dioxide from the biodegradation of organic matter could lower the pH of the stored water. This could affect a variety of chemical processes and promote heavy metal dissolution.

What is known and what needs to be learned about source water quality, including possible temporal variations? Basic information about source (surface) water is available, but not to the level required for permits, nor an in-depth understanding of potential geochemical reactions that might occur when it is mixed with aquifer water. As you might expect, much of the data are focused on the phosphorous issue. In general, surface water such as Lake Okeechobee and its tributaries/estuaries has a high organic content.
