The purpose of the Federal Requirements under the Underground Injection Control (UIC) Program for Carbon Dioxide Geologic Sequestration (GS) Wells (75 FR 77230, December 10, 2010), referred to in this Quick Reference Guide as the GS Rule, is to protect underground sources of drinking water (USDWs) through permitting, siting, construction, operation, injection, post-injection site care, and site closure requirements for the underground injection of carbon dioxide. The Class VI requirements are in place to minimize potential health risks, especially risks to populations in or near the delineated area of review (AoR) for the injection well or in the anticipated direction of the carbon dioxide plume and pressure front. The UIC Program Director has a public health protection role, and may examine the potential risks of a proposed Class VI injection well within his or her jurisdiction to identify and address any particular impacts on minority and low-income populations.
