|Description||Managed Aquifer Recharge projects are often designed to augment low stream flows by adding water to spreading basins or other infiltration facilities, and having that water migrate through the surficial aquifer and discharge to a nearby stream later in the year when it is more beneficial to fish and related instream resources. As long as the applicant needs to apply for a new water right for the source of water, they will use this form.
MAR projects require access to a source of water. This supply will likely come from a new diversion and water right from high flow season (typically winter and spring) streamflow. This new diversion will likely be an interruptible surface water right issued for times of the year when flows are above an instream flow or a surface water source limitation. It could be from the same source to which the MAR water will return as groundwater baseflow, or from another nearby surface water source. If the applicant has an existing surface water right that will supply the source water for a MAR project or wants to use Reclaimed Water as the source, they cannot use this form.
