Abstract Artificial ground-water recharge has been practiced for scores of years throughout the world. The purpose of artificial recharge is to increase the rate at which water infiltrates the land surface in order to supplement the quantity of ground water in storage. A variety of recharge techniques are feasible. Examples given in the report include methods that increase well yields, reduce the rate of decline of ground-water levels, reduce land subsidence, control seawater intrusion in coastal areas, and renovate wastewaters. Two broad types of artificial recharge are water spreading and well systems. In the former, large areas of land may be flooded, basins constructed, ditches or furrows excavated, or existing stream channels modified. Water is diverted to these structures where it infiltrates. Examples of successful recharge projects in the United States are given in the report.
