Oct. 26, 2007 -- Managed Underground Storage of Recoverable Water, a new report from the National Research Council, evaluates the potential for underground storage to keep clean and accessible water supplies to help meet future demands. Traditionally water has been stored in surface reservoirs, but problems like evaporative losses and sediment accumulation have driven water managers to seek alternative types of aquifers to increase flexibility of supplies.

This report examines the technology and implementation needs and priorities to store recoverable water underground. Specifically, the report looks at the performance of underground water storage projects, the long-term impacts on aquifer water quality, and policy changes that could help states take advantage of new technologies while protecting human health and the environment.
