Integrating Artificial recharge wells with dewatering can help to avoid the potential side effects of dewatering, like ground settlement. Recharge wells can eliminate the dewatering discharge treatment system when the groundwater at the site is contaminated. Artificial recharge wells can be used to put water back into the ground rather than treating it and discharging to another area. The following are some examples of a recharge well system design using MODFLOW modeling.
Dewatering system inside the shoring, along with the recharge wells outside the shoring area, to minimize the dewatering effect on adjacent structures. Case study in Virginia.
