For over 44 years, Torrent Resources has offered the MaxWell®- an engineered system that has been installed in the Southwest United States more than 80,000 times. The MaxWell® is simple, effective, maintainable, and best of all, it’s second to none when it comes to recharging groundwater. Even with decades of experience and expertise, questions about aquifer recharge and its potential harmful side effects are raised by those who are unfamiliar. We have the answers to those concerns and they lie within the 80,000 MaxWells that have outperformed even their greatest competitors over the years. However, it’s always nice when research can back up those claims.
In an article published by U.S. Geological Survey, study shows water quality nearly unchanged by artificial recharge activities in Wichita, Kansas.
“This study shows that most of the small changes observed in surface and groundwater quality were largely governed by streamflow and precipitation, rather than activities related to the City of Wichita’s aquifer storage and recovery efforts,” said Scott Macey, City of Wichita Water Resource Engineer. “Understanding the condition of water resources adjacent to the recovery project allows Wichita to make informed water planning decisions.”
In 2007, the City of Wichita began to artificially recharge the aquifer with treated storm runoff water from the Little Arkansas River or bank storage wells along the river. Later in 2013, Phase II of the project included runoff being treated to meet drinking-water quality standards before recharging the aquifer through wells, or recharge basins.
“Study results show no significant differences in the quality of the Little Arkansas River upstream and downstream of the treatment facility after the ASR facility began operating.” In this study, perhaps the most significant findings…are finding nothing at all.
