An introduction to the design, construction, operation, and abandonment of subsurface wastewater injection systems is presented. Local geologic and hydrologic characteristics of the injection and confining intervals are considered along with the physical, chemical, and biological compatibility of the receiving zone with the wastewater to be injected. Design and construction aspects of injection wells are presented along with recommended pre-injection testing, operating procedures, and emergency precautions. Monitoring requirements are discussed, in addition to records maintenance and proper well abandonment procedures.
