European Perspective on Managed Aquifer Recharge with Reclaimed Water
The utilisation of alternative water sources like reclaimed municipal wastewater is one of the most obvious and promising options in integrated water resources management under water stress conditions. Among the various beneficial uses of reclaimed water Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) receives growing attention. It features advantages such as additional natural treatment, storage capacity to buffer seasonal variations of supply and demand as well as mixing with natural water bodies which promotes the acceptance of further uses, particularly indirect potable use. In coastal areas MAR serves as salt water intrusion barrier. Major concerns about the safety of this exploitation route of an alternative water source are connected to microbial and chemical contaminants occurring in wastewater, among which are emerging trace organics like endocrine disrupters and pharmaceuticals. This paper presents the European RECLAIM WATER research project on water reclamation technologies for safe aquifer recharge.
