Aquifer Storage and Recovery
In Texas, an Aquifer Storage and Retrieval Project is defined as:
"A project with two phases that anticipates the use of a Class V aquifer storage well, as defined in Section 331.2 of this title (relating to Definitions), for injection into a geologic formation, group of formations, or part of a formation that is capable of underground storage of appropriated surface water for subsequent retrieval and beneficial use. Phase I of the project requires commission authorization by a temporary or term permit to determine feasibility for ultimate storage and retrieval for beneficial use. Phase II of the project requires commission authorization by permit or permit amendment after the commission has determined that Phase I of the project has been successful." (TCEQ Chapter 297.1.5 relating to Water Rights, Definitions).
