USEPA Underground Injection Control (UIC) Permit

A Class IID Underground Injection Control permit must be obtained from the Region II Office of the USEPA before operating any well for brine disposal. EPA staff review proposed operations with respect to protection of groundwater aquifers. Parameters reviewed by the EPA may include well construction and plugging plans, proposed injection rate and pressure, injectate composition, and proposed injectate and groundwater monitoring plans.
