Underground Injection Control (UIC) in Environmental Law

The program established by the Safe Drinking Water Act to control the practice of disposing of wastes in a conduit, cave, well, or salt dome. Permits for such wells must be obtained from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) or the state, if the program has been delegated. The primary reason for requiring permits is to protect groundwater from pollution.
