Underground Injection Control (UIC) Wells

LCA Environmental, Inc. provides consulting and support for regulatory closure involving Underground Injection Control (UIC) Wells.

Underground Injection Control (UIC) Wells

The Underground Injection Control (UIC) Wells program is a delegated EPA program. UIC wells require extensive study support documentation before permits are issued by TCEQ. When wells have served their intended purpose, particularly shallow disposal wells, they are investigated under TRRP and closed. This often involves the installation of soil borings and groundwater monitoring wells to insure the UIC wells did not release material into subsurface soil strata or water bearing zones other than as designed.
