The Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendment of 1984 requires the Environmental Protection Agency to assess environmental suitability of liquid-waste injection into subsurface rock. The main objective of the feasibility study described was to test the hypothesis, evidence about dynamics of building mud cake on the wellbore-face was obtained, as well as comprehension of changes that occur in drilling mud from the time it is placed in a well until it reaches equilibrium.
