Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR)

Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) is a promising technique to secure a freshwater supply. A MAR system consists of infiltration wells, which recharge the shallow aquifer during the wet season. During the dry season, the stored groundwater is recovered from a central well. Small-scale MAR systems are relatively low-cost and can be operated by local users.
