Description

Progress in managed aquifer recharge and the water banking frontier followed by a interactive session "Listening to local MAR progress, plans and implementation issues".

Twenty two years of CSIRO and partners’ scientific research on managed aquifer recharge with urban stormwater and recycled water, has involved a combination of monitoring of first of breed demonstration projects, synthesis across projects, laboratory studies and modelling.

This talk will cover a retrospective on some key research findings that together with our national treasures have given Australia an international head-start on the practice of MAR with urban stormwater and on MAR guidelines and policy. Myths that have deferred uptake and remaining research gaps will be exposed.

The talk will also project forward to reveal new technical, policy and institutional considerations for implementing water banking for drought security. It will conclude with a concise summary of current activities of the IAH Commission on MAR.
