What is a groundwater recharge facility?

Groundwater recharge facilities like the Weaver Basins allow for the percolation process to take place in order to replenish local water supplies. Essentially, water delivered to the facility will be stored at the site's basins and percolate down through the bottom into the aquifer where it will go through the natural water cycle again.
