The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rule that defines required activities for geologic sequestration of carbon dioxideFederal Requirements Under the Underground Injection Control (UIC) Program for Carbon Dioxide Geologic Sequestration Wellsis now codified in the US Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR Section 146.81 et seq.). This rule is also known as the Geologic Sequestration (GS) Rule. The GS Rule establishes a new class of injection well (Class VI) and sets minimum federal technical criteria for the operation of Class VI injection wells while ensuring protection of underground sources of drinking water (USDWs). This document is part of a series of technical guidance documents to support owners or operators of Class VI wells and the UIC Program permitting authorities.
