How can we replenish aquifers?

    Naturally, aquifers are replenished by a process called recharge.  This is when surface water from rain, runoff, lakes etc. seeps through the ground and percolates into the aquifer.

    Aquifers can be artificially replenished as well.  We can inject and pump water directly into the aquifer to replenish it or we can spread water over the surface and it can seep down to the aquifer.
