Summary:

Conjunctive use of surface and groundwater refers to the combined use and development of surface water and groundwater as a strategy for climate change adaptation, or sustainable resource use in general. Conjunctive use strategies aim to increase the overall resilience of water supply by utilizing both sources of water, particularly in communities and basins with high water availability throughout the seasons. It often focuses on the advantageous role of groundwater for water storage, distribution and treatment (through biological processes) in not only increasing water supply, but also improving water quality and distribution.
