About the Inventor

Madison farms uses artificial recharge (AR) as a way to take high winter flood flows to recharge the shallow alluvial ground water.  The shallow ground water is then pumped out and is either directly applied to the growing crops or through artificial storage and recovery (ASR) is treated and injected down a 700 foot deep well through the 3R Valve and into the basalt aquifer.  This water is stored for several months as long term stored water and is recovered in the late summer and early fall for use on growing crops.  After researching the different down hole control valves on the market I decided that I could design and manufacture a better valve.  I believe the the 3R Valve is just that.
