A survey of groundwater recharge operations with municipal wastewater effluent was conducted. It was found that this activity is being practiced at 10 sites in the U.S. with a total capacity of 77 MGD. The most successful employ percolation with alternate flooding and drying cycles. Well injection can be successful but only if rigorous control of injected water quality is maintained. Clogging of recharge wells is the major problem. At the sites surveyed reasonable success has been achieved over periods ranging from 1 to 20 years.
