Description
 
Every day in the U.S., at least 2 billion gallons of fluids are injected into over 172,000 wells to enhance oil and gas production, or to dispose of fluids brought to the surface during the extraction of oil and gas resources. These wells are subject to regulation to protect drinking water sources under the Environmental Protection Agencyńˇ╗s (EPA's) Underground Injection Control (UIC) class II program and approved state class II programs. Because much of the population relies on underground sources for drinking water, these wells have raised concerns about the safety of the nation's drinking water. This report examines (1) EPA and state roles, responsibilities, and resources for the program; (2) safeguards to protect drinking water; (3) EPA oversight and enforcement of class II programs; and (4) the reliability of program data for reporting. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
