Aquifer Storage and Recovery Site Exploration
Drill and test sites on publicly-owned lands to locate potential aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) opportunities. ASR projects store water in underground aquifers until it is needed. It is an appealing type of storage because it produces cold water and doesn't affect fish migration.
ASR projects provide many of the same benefits provided by surface storage, but without water temperature and fish passage concerns.
A list of potential ASR sites will be produced.
