DEQ Issues New Underground Injection Control General Permit

DEQ’s Underground Injection Control Program has released a new general permit for owners of underground injection control systems that operate less than 50 UICs. A “UIC” is a device that injects fluids (in this case stormwater) into the ground. This type of stormwater disposal system is also known as a drywell. This permit can be used by owners and operators of UICs within 500 feet of water wells to bring their UICs into compliance DEQ regulates stormwater UICs to ensure that drinking water is protected from pollutants in stormwater. Current UIC system operators covered under an individual UIC permit may be eligible for the general permit. Visit the General Class V Stormwater UIC Permit page for more information.
