Aquifer garage and restoration (ASR) is a method during which water is recharged via wells to an aquifer and extracted for priceless use at a few later time from a similar wells. ASR is proposed as an immense water garage part within the complete Everglades recovery Plan (CERP), built together by means of the U.S. military Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the South Florida Water administration District (SFWMD). The plan may use the higher Floridan aquifer (UFA) to shop up to 1.7 billion gallons consistent with day (gpd) (6.3 million m3/day) of extra floor water and shallow groundwater in the course of rainy sessions for restoration in the course of seasonal or longer-term dry classes, utilizing approximately 333 wells. ASR represents approximately one-fifth of the complete anticipated fee of the CERP.
Aquifer garage and restoration within the accomplished Everglades recovery Plan examines pilot venture from the point of view of adaptive review, i.e., the level to which the pilot tasks will give a contribution to procedure realizing that may enhance layout and implementation of recovery venture elements. This record is a critique of the pilot tasks and similar studies.

How will the regulatory concerns associated with injection of these source waters be addressed in the pilot studies? As the pilot project PMP indicates, two primary tasks are geared towards addressing regulatory issues. First, the source-water quality characterization program attempts to characterize spatial and temporal variability of source water prior to ASR recharge. This is required to obtain an Underground Injection Control (UIC) permit. In addition, it will help determine the parameter list for recovered water.
The CROGEE recommends that ecotoxicological studies, including long-term bioassays conducted at the field scale, be undertaken during the period of the pilot program to evaluate the ecological impacts of water quality changes resulting from broad use of ASR water to supplement inflows to the Everglades during droughts. Water recharged to ASR wells will come primarily from Lake Okeechobee and other impoundments. The source waters and surrounding lands can and should be managed to minimize the occurrence of pathogens in the water being pumped down the wells.
M. m. m. m. Adjourn 26 Appendix A: Workshop Agenda 27 NOTES FOR ASR WORKSHOP: We interpret the essential purpose of the pilot projects as answering questions such as: It is physically possible that the quantities of water envisioned by the CERP can be stored and recovered in the Florida aquifer at the proposed spatial and temporal scales? If so, what undesirable physical, chemical, ecological, and societal impacts may ASR cause, and how do we assess the likelihood and seriousness of these impacts?
