Sequence of operations of the Atlantis Water Resources Management Scheme

The Atlantis model is based on artificial groundwater recharge as a water management tool for bulk water supply in southern Africa. This involves management of large volumes of storm water from urban areas aimed at controlling impacts on surface water. Managed aquifer recharge ensured the sustainability of the Atlantis groundwater supply over more than two decades and will continue to play a key role. Indirect recycling of storm water and treated domestic wastewater via the aquifer as a means to augment supplies has been adopted by the public. The groundwater scheme provides a cost-effective water supply option when coupled with strict management of the resource.
