The replenishment of groundwater by infiltration of rain and snow through the soil.
Some of the water that precipitates, flows on ground surface (surface runoff) or seeps through soil first, then flows laterally (interflow), and some continues to percolate deeper into the soil. This body of water will eventually reach a saturated zone and replenish or recharge groundwater supply.
The process by which water is added to a zone of saturation, usually by percolation from the soil surface, e.g., the recharge of an aquifer.
the action by which water is added to a rock layer either naturally or artificially
Downward movement of water through soil to ground water.
The process by which water is added to a reservoir or zone of saturation, often by runoff or percolation from the soil surface.
Zone in which surface water enters the soil and moves beyond the rootzone of plants to join the groundwater layer
In hydrology, the replenishment of groundwater, usually by infiltration of meteoric water through the soil.
The addition of new water to an AQUIFER or to the zone of saturation.
Water added to an aquifer. For example, when rainwater seeps into the ground. Recharge may occur artificially through injection wells or by spreading water over groundwater reservoirs.
That part of precipitation which infiltrates and percolates downward to the saturated zone.
Replenishing an aquifer with storm water or imported water.
Water added to an aquifer or other water body. An aquifer is recharged by precipitation in an area where the aquifer has a porous connection to the surface.
This is the process whereby an aquifer replenishes tapped water. Typically, as water is tapped and pulled from an aquifer, more water fills in the volume tapped, thus recharging the aquifer's water level. If certain conditions arise, such as drought and over tapping for various uses, then recharging cannot keep up with the water amounts being extracted from the aquifer and it is depleted, eventually running out of usable, fresh water. Since aquifers are usually quite large, combined with annual recharge, it takes a long time before an aquifer runs out of water
Replenishment of a groundwater reservoir (aquifer) by the addition of water.
Putting water back into the ground, via rainfall or melting snow. Water from passing rivers and streams also percolates downward.
Water that infiltrates to an aquifer, usually from above.
The addition of water to the groundwater supply from precipitation and by infiltration from surface streams, lakes, reservoirs, and snow melt.
The process by which water is absorbed and added to the saturated zone (aquifer), either directly into a body of rock or indirectly by way of an adjacent body of rock. Also, it is the quantity of water that is added to the saturated zone.
Process by which precipitation or applied water seeps or percolates into the groundwater system.
To add water to an aquifer; also, the water added to an aquifer. See also artificial recharge, incidental recharge, natural recharge.
Surface water supplies, such as rainfall, entering underground rock formations which contain aquifers suitable for recharge.
Ground water supplies are replenished, or recharged, when rain or snowmelt enters the saturation zone.
Water added to an aquifer or the process of adding water to an aquifer. Ground water recharge occurs either naturally as the net gain from precipitation, or artificially as the result of human influence. See artificial recharge.
to replenish a water body or an aquifer with water; the replacement of any water that may have flowed out or been pumped out of an aquifer.
Water that infiltrates into the ground, usually from above, that replenishes groundwater reserves, provides soil moisture, and affords evapotranspiration.
Net accumulation of water into an aquifer from sources such as precipitation, seepage, and injection.
The physical process where water naturally percolates or sinks into a groundwater basin.
Water that drains through the soil and reaches the watertable.
The addition of water to an aquifer by infiltration, either directly into the aquifer or indirectly by way of another rock formation. Recharge may be natural, as when precipitation infiltrates to the water table, or artificial, as when water is injected through wells or spread over permeable surfaces for the purpose of recharging an aquifer.
Rainfall that drains past the root zone and reaches the groundwater.
refill, replenish (Groundwater recharge occurs readily in the sandy soil of New Jersey's Pinelands.)
A component of rainfall that drains below the root zone of vegetation and joins the groundwater.
as used here, refreshing an ion exchange resin once it becomes filled up with calcium and magnesium ions (hardness); done in home water softeners by addition of sodium ions (salt).
Process by which water seeps or percolates into the groundwater basin either adding to or replacing that which has been removed.
The replenishment of ground water by seepage (deep percolation) of precipitation and runoff. Also stated as the process of addition of water to the saturated zone.
Replacement of water once drawn or pumped from a source like an aquifer.
Any process whereby water is added to the saturated zone of an aquifer.
The replacement of water to an aquifer. In some treatment configurations, treated water is directly pumped into the aquifer.
Water that infiltrates the ground and reaches the saturated zone.
increases in groundwater storage from precipitation, infiltration from streams, or human activity (artificial recharge), such as putting surface water into spreading basins
to return water into the ground either via percolation or injection.
Replenishing an aquifer with stormwater or imported water
The natural or artificial process of replenishing the groundwater.
The percolation of water from the surface into a groundwater aquifer. The water source can be precipitation, surface water, or irrigation.
The replenishment of water to an aquifer.
the addition of water to an aquifer. Recharge happens when surface water or precipitation enters the aquifer.
Re-supplying of water to the aquifer. Recharge generally comes from snowmelt and storm water runoff.
the portion of rainfall or river flow that percolates down through the soil and rock formations to reach the groundwater.
Replenishment of the water supply in an aquifer through the outcrop or along fracture lines.
mechanisms of inflow to the aquifer. Typical sources of recharge are precipitation, applied irrigation water, underflow from tributary basins and seepage from surface water bodies.
water coming into the groundwater system, such as rain soaking into the ground.
water added to an aquifer. For instance, rainfall that seeps into the ground.
Water that infiltrates through the soil surface to the watertable.
The process of water seeping into the ground and refilling the aquifer. Jump to Top
Area Area of land where surface water infiltrates down into an aquifer.
The addition of water to the zone of saturation-, also, the amount of water added.
The replenishment of ground water in an aquifer. It can be either natural, through the movement of precipitation into an aquifer, or artificial, the pumping of water into an aquifer.
Process by which water is added to the zone of saturation, as recharge of an aquifer.
Process by which rainwater (precipitation) seeps into the groundwater system.
The process of increasing the water stored in the saturated zone of an aquifer.
Adding more value to an existing calling card to maintain its functionality.
Recharge is the process where water moves downward from surface water to groundwater. This process usually occurs in the unsaturated zone, or vadose zone.
