EPAs Federal Requirements Under the Underground Injection Control (UIC) Program for Carbon Dioxide Geologic Sequestration Wells, are now codified in the US Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR SC 146.81 et seq.), 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 Class VI injection wells for the purpose of protecting underground sources of drinking water (USDWs). This guidance is part of a series of technical guidance documents that EPA is developing to support owners and operators of Class VI wells and the UIC Program permitting authorities in the implementation of the GS Rule.
