How much waste water can you process?
DWA is permitted to handle 20,000 barrels of fluid per day, ensuring our ability to meet the needs of surrounding oil and gas producers.
How do Class II wells protect drinking water resources?
When oil and gas are extracted, large amounts of brine are typically brought to the surface. Often saltier than seawater, this brine can also contain toxic metals and radioactive substances. It can be very damaging to the environment and public health if it is discharged to surface water or the land surface. By injecting the brine deep underground, Class II wells prevent surface contamination of soil and water.
Why does EPA regulate injection wells?
In 1974, Congress passed the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). Part of SDWA required EPA to report back to Congress on waste disposal practices, and develop minimum federal requirements for injection practices that protect public health by preventing injection wells from contaminating underground sources of drinking water (USDWs).
Is it really environmentally responsible?
Disposal well activity is regularly monitored and regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ensure safety and ecologically responsible methods are followed. DWA has the utmost commitment in meeting and exceeding EPA standards.
How do the Underground Injection Control Regulations protect ground water?The Underground Injection Control Regulations Program protects underground sources of drinking water from endangerment by setting minimum requirements for injection wells. All injection must be authorized under either general rules or specific permits. Injection well owners and operators may not site, construct, operate, maintain, convert, plug, abandon, or conduct any other injection activity that endangers underground sources of drinking water. The purpose of the Underground Injection Control requirements is to:
- Ensure that injected fluids stay within the well and the intended injection zone, or
- Mandate that fluids that are directly or indirectly injected into a underground sources of drinking water do not cause a public water system to violate drinking water standards or otherwise adversely affect public health.
