Replenishing an underlying groundwater aquifer through the movement of surface water into the ground by natural or assisted means.
Natural recharge: Rain and streamflow that soaks into the ground to an underlying groundwater aquifer. This happens without human assistance in undeveloped areas with healthy soils and vegetation.
Artificial recharge: Water that is put back into the ground through human effort, either with recharge ponds or injection wells.
