Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR)
MAR is a growing sector in New Zealand due to freshwater stress, regulatory focus, and increased economic viability of sustainable use and re-use of water resources. It is becoming increasingly recognised that in many instances and applications, the huge storage & filtration capacities of aquifers can offer significant advantages over other traditional water storage and recovery methods. PDP has been actively working on MAR projects for over 30 years; building an extensive track record across a range of clients and industries.
PDP has helped clients realise and utilise the water storage & water recovery potential available right beneath their feet – from large-scale soakage of urban storm water to scoria in Auckland, diversion of winter river flows to gravel aquifers for summer irrigation in Canterbury, or deep well groundwater abstraction & re-injection for heating/cooling in Christchurch – PDP has delivered successful outcomes. The vast potential of MAR in many regions of NZ remains largely undiscovered or untapped. Call PDP’s groundwater experts to discuss how MAR can be used to benefit your project.
