2021 Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR)
Well Science Plan Now Available
After receiving input from the public, stakeholders, and an expert review panel, the 2021 Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) Well Science Plan is now available at SFWMD/asr. This inaugural plan is anticipated to be updated annually to reflect the latest science and best available information on the use of ASR wells in Everglades projects.
The South Florida Water Management District and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers developed the 2021 ASR Well Science Plan to support a phased, science-based implementation of ASR wells as part of the Lake Okeechobee Watershed Restoration Project (LOWRP).
