General
National Id:

Site name: 
Segovia province, left bank of Voltoya and Eresma Rivers.
Summary: 
Managed Aquifer Recharge in Los Arenales (Segovia, Spain). As showed by data obtained after 8 effective recharge cycles carried out in an experimental area (Cubeta de San Tiuste) at Los Arenales Aquifer (Segovia, Duero River Basin, Spain), Managed Aquifer Recharge can be more than an effective measure for storing large quantities of water in underground aquifers to naturally increase the quantity of groundwater in times of shortage: it can also result in an enhanced natural condition of aquifers and water availability. Also, the natural cleaning process of water percolating through the soils when entering the AGR showed its potential for providing improved water quality
