UIC Website Updated
EPA has revised its Underground Injection Control (UIC) program Web site. The program regulates injection activities to prevent contamination of underground drinking water resources. The new site has basic information about each of the types of wells that are regulated under the program; videos, posters, and other publications that show how the wells are constructed and managed; and compliance assistance information for well owners. The site also has background on EPA's current effort to develop a proposed regulation for the underground injection of CO2 as part of a larger carbon capture-and-storage effort to stabilize atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations.
