Getting the Most Out of Local Resources
In 2001, United Water Toms River implemented a technology-based solution to increase water resources and improve quality in a cost-effective manner.
The ASR wells, short for Aquifer Storage and Recovery, use a technique designed to increase the year-round capacity of three wells within the current distribution system.
The basic ASR process involves the “banking and recovery” of water to increase system capacity.
Water is taken from one aquifer during low demand periods, and is stored or “banked” in another aquifer until it is “recovered”, or used during periods of high demand.
During the winter months, water is withdrawn from the Cohansey Aquifer and then injected into the deeper Potomac Raritan Magothy Aquifer. The water will be stored in the Potomac Raritan Magothy Aquifer until it is needed during the summer months thus increasing the water resources for use when it is needed most.
- Maximizes the use of wells already in place
- Improves the quality of water being withdrawn
- Decreases the cost of additional treatment facilities
United Water New Jersey has incorporated state-of-the-art ozone technology into the $100 million upgrade of the Haworth Water Treatment Plant.
