Illinois Water Supply Planning




Induced recharge:
     The process by which water enters the ground from a surface water source as a result of withdrawal of groundwater adjacent to the source. Wells, infiltration galleries, and collector wells located directly adjacent to and fed largely by surface water cause surface water to move into the groundwater system.
