Underground Injection Wells
National Summary
The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) protects all sources of drinking water, including underground sources (aquifers). Under the SDWA, the underground injection control (UIC) program regulates any injection of waste into the subsurface. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) groups underground injection wells into six classes for regulatory control purposes.
