Title: Re-Conceptualizing the Edwards Aquifer Authority Recharge Program: Staff Recommendations to Optimize and Protect the Edwards Aquifer
Description:
Recharge is defined in the EAA Act as: Increasing the supply of water to the aquifer by naturally occurring channels or artificial means. Based on this definition, the EAA recharge program previously consisted of four recharge dams initially sponsored by the EUWD and Medina County Commissioners Court until calendar year 2004, when participation in the regional Precipitation Enhancement Program (PEP) was added to the program.
