Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) Project Overview

GroundwaterU Video Summary

This video describes plans for an Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASP) test project in the Elmodel Wildlife Management Area in Georgia. ASP is a way of storing water in deep aquifers until they are needed during periods of drought. Multimedia include a map of ASR Projects in the U.S. (t=1:40) and an animation of the ASP process (t=1:58), which consists of pumping water from the shallow Floridan Aquifer into the deeper Claiborne and Clayton Aquifers. During dry periods, groundwater will be pumped from these storage aquifers to supplement river flow.
