As many states expect continued drought in 2016 and beyond, the management of aquifers will be increasingly important, said the National Ground Water Association. One potentially helpful tool is managed aquifer recharge (MAR). MAR captures available water during wet periods, during periods of low demand, or water that would be otherwise lost, then moves this water under controlled conditions into underground aquifers. There are hundreds of such projects in place across the nation.
