Definitions for "Induced Recharge"
The recharge to an aquifer that occurs when a pumping well creates a cone of depression that lowers an adjacent water table below the level of a stream or lake, causing the stream or lake to lose water to the adjacent groundwater aquifer.
the phenomenon of drawing water from a stream into a well. Induced recharge occurs when the cone of depression reaches as far as the stream, thereby lowering the water table beneath it and thereby reversing the direction of groundwater flow.
Recharge to ground water by infiltration, either natural or anthropogenic, from a body of surface water as a result of the lowering of the ground-water level below the surface-water level.
