This symposium will focus on various types of recharge systems: bank infiltration, recharge via ponds, wells, tanks, etc. and should form a basis for scientific exchange and discussions on recent developments, e.g.:

*          geochemical processes

     *       microbiological aspects

     *       removal of pollutants

     *       recharge with treated waste water

     *       hydraulic aspects and modeling
