Title: Produced water of quality can recharge aquifers.
Text: Water Management: Beneficial Use: Aquifer Recharge: "Produced water of sufficient quality could be used to recharge surficial aquifers during drought years and recharge depleted coal seam aquifers. Impoundments could be constructed and produced water allowed to infiltrate into shallow alluvial aquifers.... The use of produced water to recharge shallow surficial aquifers and coal seam aquifers could also meet the requirements established in some mitigation agreements."
