USACE: ASR Study Almost Finished

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville District is in the process of finalizing a comprehensive study on research related to the use of Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR), an Everglades restoration component proposed as part of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) to recharge, store and recover water underground for ecological restoration uses. 

The study, which documents the results of over a decade’s worth of scientific and engineering investigations, will serve as a technical guide when considering ASR implementation as part of future Everglades restoration efforts and is scheduled to be finalized by this summer.

The ASR Regional Study was developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) to reduce uncertainties of ASR implementation on hydrological, ecological, and geotechnical conditions in the Greater Everglades.

The study investigates the feasibility of regional-scale ASR, using state-of-the-art methods and models. Investigations were performed in collaboration with the SFWMD, U.S. Geological Survey, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
