In response to a directive from Congress, expressed in Section 701 of the 'Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984', EPA obtained information on the engineering, hydrological, regulatory and waste characteristics of hazardous waste injection wells. Some of the general characteristics found were: There were 252 wells in 112 facilities of which 195 in 90 facilities were active in 1984; The injected volume of 181 wells which were active in 1983 was estimated at 11.5 billion gallons. Most of the injection occurs in the Gulf Coast and the Great Lakes Area.
