The Mississippi River Valley alluvial (MRVA) aquifer is one of the main shallow aquifers for agriculture in the United States. The MRVA supplies over 90% of irrigation water in the Lower Mississippi River Basin, due to its accessibility and high yield. Irrigation demand has increased since the early 1900s with continued expansion and inequitable recharge contributions. The overdraft of the MRVA in Arkansas has resulted in the designation of critical groundwater areas. Managed aquifer recharge (MAR) methods intentionally replenish stressed groundwater resources while emphasizing the protection and improvement of groundwater quantity and quality. MAR using infiltration galleries (IG) is being tested in the Cache River Critical Groundwater Area (CRCGA) of eastern Arkansas. These IG are shallow, gravel-filled trenches excavated to the upper unsaturated MRVA sand sediments. Recharge source water from a nearby on-farm storage reservoir will flow through the gravel fill as well as through 30 m of unsaturated MRVA sands and gravels before reaching the water table. The IG appears to be a promising MAR method to enhance recharge and store surface water within the MRVA. Identification of other priority areas to install IG is needed to determine the adoptability. As part of a class group project, students analyzed and interpreted available geospatial and hydrological data to identify and support ideal IG locations. Prioritized IG sites will have the following conditions: thin confining unit, large depth to groundwater, and areas near an on-farm storage reservoir.
