Environmental Services

  • Goals: Increased environmental flows, protected biodiversity, increased water supply, increased aesthetic value.
  • Solutions: MAR and ASR, natural recharge and discharge protection.
  • Green infrastructure: Protecting springs, protecting pressure of artesian aquifers, protecting natural recharge and discharge areas.
  • Grey infrastructure: Water/runoff retention/infiltration basins, in-channel mechanisms, irrigation canals, recharge wells, capping freely flowing artesian wells.
  • Policy interventions: Reserve/environmental flow requirements, (ground)water quality standards, recipient environmental quality standards, land use regulations, managing groundwater use/entitlements, regulation of recharge/discharge.
