This study is an investigation of the feasibility of an aquifer storage and recovery project using the existing water supply infrastructure of the city of Millville, Utah. The project involved injecting water from a public water supply spring into a public water supply well. Geochemical analysis indicates that the major ion chemistry of the spring water is very similar to that of the principal aquifer, however, the spring water would likely cause minor geochemical changes in the groundwater due to oxidation. The study also showed that the injection well had elevated nitrate concentration which is likely due to septic systems in the area. Overall, the pilot tests showed that injection of water for storage would not be detrimental to the principal aquifer, which has significant storage abilities beyond the capacity of Mill¬ville’s water system; however elevated nitrate in the aquifer is a problem that should be addressed.
