Climatic changes and extremities make Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) an increasingly attractive and practical water management tool. Homogeneous models will be insufficient for predicting the recovery potential of a particular aquifer or for predicting problems with flow barriers. This study generates many heterogeneous models using geostatistics without traditional reservoir data (wells/seismic). These models are used in a sensitivity analysis to determine the most influential flow structures; this analysis can then be used to design an informative geophysical survey. Lastly, ASR activities are simulated to evaluate the local aquifer's potential for groundwater storage and recovery.
