This study is a compilation of existing information on the Class I UIC injection program. Much program data has been gathered on Class I hazardous and nonhazardous injection wells, and each type of well is regulated separately, but stringently. In the study, the hazardous and nonhazardous Class I requirements are presented together to give a complete picture of the UIC program. Many UIC Primacy states place requirements on Class I nonhazardous waste disposal wells under their jurisdiction that are equivalent to, or stricter than, the federal Class I hazardous well requirements. Moreover, the Agency believes, from information collected in past studies and reports related to rulemaking, that substantial volumes of decharacterized wastewaters are being managed in Class I hazardous injection wells, thus providing a significant degree of protection to human health and the environment. Any different requirements between Class I non-hazardous and hazardous wells are described and compared to give the reader a more complete perspective of the preventative aspects of the entire UIC Class I program
