The workshop fostered the relationship between Australian and Chinese
scientists and water managers and introduced a link for collaboration in
developing MAR programs, prioritizing and undertaking future research.
Capacity were be built by sharing over 10 years experience in
operational MAR schemes using a variety of techniques, water resources
and aquifer types, to a country with limited experience in MAR or in
integrating water management.
The purpose of the MAR workshop is to transfer
Australia expertise in managed aquifer recharge (MAR) to China and to
communicate the experiment on all aspects of a MAR scheme from desktop
feasibly study to commissioning a full-scale operation and the
competencies required with Chinese colleagues from engineering,
research, management fields related to water resources management and
hydrogeology and artificial recharged of groundwater.
