Denver Water ASR Pilot Project

People Cortney Brand, Dave Colvin, Jacob Bauer, , Helen Malenda-Lawrence, Vicky Yeap

LRE Water has supported Denver Water in a multi-year, multi-phase project to assess the feasibility of using Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) wells as a water supply strategy and to select a site for a pilot facility. The most recent phase included the completion and geophysical logging of eight, 1,000+ foot deep exploratory boreholes in the Denver Basin to characterize the hydraulic and water quality of the aquifers. LRE Water also prepared an ASR pilot facility cost estimate and operations plan.
