Summary:

Managed aquifer recharge (MAR) is a water management approach that can be used to maximize natural storage and increase water supply system resilience during periods of low flows and high seasonal variability. During these periods, such as in the dry season, aquifers are intentionally recharged to recover water. A managed recharge implies that the recharge process is controlled and ensures health and environmental risks are minimized. MAR is a vital adaptation opportunity for developing countries coping with water variability and shortages.
