We interpret the essential purpose of the pilot projects as answering questions such as:

It is physically possible that the quantities of water envisioned by the CERP can be stored and recovered in the Florida aquifer at the proposed spatial and temporal scales?

If so, what undesirable physical, chemical, ecological, and societal impacts may ASR cause, and how do we assess the likelihood and seriousness of these impacts?

Two essential questions that will govern the execution of the workshop are:

As designed, will the pilot projects largely answer these questions?

If not, how might they be improved?
