Recharge Projects

Groundwater recharge project sites

Intel Assabet Groundwater Recharge Fund
The $1.5 million Intel Assabet Groundwater Recharge Fund has supported community projects that directly recharge water that would otherwise be piped into a stormwater sewer system or discharged straight into a stream or river. These projects are increasing the amount of groundwater available during dry periods to maintain the base flow of the river and its tributaries. OARS has provided administrative support to the Fund and managed the proposal process.

The six recharge projects are:

Center School--Stow

Floral Street School--Shrewsbury

Department of Public Works--Westborough

Cherry Street Stormwater Recharge--Hudson

Bolton Library-- Bolton

Junction Park-- West Concord
