Abstract

This white paper evaluates the potential issues, solutions, and opportunities for groundwater recharge with recycled water on agricultural lands (Ag-GWR-RW) in California. Extensive research is currently being conducted on groundwater recharge (GWR) with surface or stormwater on agricultural lands and the use of recycled water to recharge groundwater basins is a variation on this concept. This white paper explores potential issues and solutions associated with the implementation of Ag-GWR-RW, as well as best practices and research to address these issues. Published by WRF. 164 pages.
