Since 1971 work has been proceeding on a project to use tertiary-treated wastewater effluent for artificial recharge of the groundwater on St. Croix. A 0.5 mgd (1,890 cu m/day) advanced wastewater treatment plant and recharge facilities were designed and constructed. Background data on water quality and quantity in the surrounding area were collected for 2-1/2 years before recharging began. Recharge operations were carried out for 8 months during 1974, using both spray irrigation and spreading basins. The best method of recharging proved to be the use of spreading basins in an alluvial valley. The cost for the wastewater treatment, recharge operations, and recovery of groundwater was estimated to be about $2.15/thousand gal ($0.57/cu m) at 0.5 mgd (1,890 cu m/day) with a reduction in estimated costs to $1.64/thousand gal ($0.43/cu m) if the operation is expanded to 1 mgd (3,785 cu m/day).
