Contents Notes
"Almost one half of the salt water produced with oil and gas operations in the United States is generated in Texas and Kansas. Much of this produced water is either reinjected into the subsurface in enhanced recovery operations or disposed of through subsurface injection. The full report describes in detail the Underground Injection Control (UIC) programs relating to Class II wells in Texas and Kansas. The UIC program regulations, the individual agency administrative procedures, and the methods of handling ground water contamination incidents resulting from the injection or disposal of salt water are discussed. In addition, several case studies of contamination caused by Class II wells are detailed."
