A need for international and interdisciplinary technology transfer on the subject of artificial recharge resulted in the American Society of Civil Engineers' (ASCE) Irrigation and Drainage Division convening an International Symposium on Artificial Recharge of Ground Water 23 to 27 August, 1988 at Anaheim, California. This proceedings contains papers selected from those presented orally and by poster at the symposium. From the presented papers, 63 have been selected for publication. Research and operating projects in 10 foreign countries and 9 states of the USA are described by a very interdisciplinary group of engineers and scientists. The papers show that considerable research and operational experience has been completed on various types of artificial recharge, some projects being successfully operated, for example in California and Israel, for 30 or more years. Also considerable research and experience on subsurface injection of liquids (brines, wastes, chemicals, etc.) has occurred over recent years and much of what has been learned is seen to be applicable to artificial recharge. The presentations discuss economic and institutional considerations, infiltration and subsurface hydraulics, use of reclaimed water, effects of water quality, design and operation of installation, conjunctive use, and case studies from both the USA and foreign countries. Ready availability of research and operational experiences as represented by papers in this volume should be especially productive during these times of increased interest in artificial recharge.
