Is there any way to replenish fossil water?



  1. 0 Votes

    Fossil water is essentially nonrenewable, similar to oil, as fossil aquifers formed thousands ago, undisturbed, in different climates.  It could be replenished if left completely alone for thousands more years, but considering the unlikelihood of that, and the painfully slow rate of recharge, it is fair to call it a nonrenewable resource.

    Fossil water could be replenished by directly injecting water into the depleted basin.  However, this would be extremely impractical, time consuming, and costly.  If potable water was already being produced at a facility, it would be far more practical to distribute the water to where it was needed immediately or store it in easier to access man made basins, rather than a larger, hard to access natural one.
