This manual supplements the various regulations applicable to this permitting process. A suggested sample EPA permit is included. The appropriate regulatory authorities are specified for each step of the pro- cedure to guide the permit writer through the various program requirements. The procedures discussed in this guidance are generally technical and are adaptable to both State and Federal permit programs; thus, both State and Federal permit writers will find them useful. This manual is directed specifically to aid in processing permit appli- cations for discharges to injection wells used by generators of hazardous wastes or hazardous waste management facilities. These wells are classi- fied as Class I and Class IV wells in 40 CFR 146. For the reasons discussed below and in other sections, this manual does not address other Class I wells (other industrial and municipal disposal wells which inject fluids below the lowermost formation containing, within % mile of the well bore, an underground source of drinking water), Class IV wells which inject radio- active wastes, and other injection wells (Classes II, III, and V as defined in 40 CFR 146). The programs needed to issue permits to these other wells are not in place at this time. It is anticipated, however, that once pro- grams for permitting these additional classes of wells are established, this guidance, with minor modifications, will be useful. Much of the information in this manual is based on Federal regulations that are subject to revision or revocation. All such changes through Decem- ber 1981 are believed to be reflected in the material presented herein. However, the reader is cautioned to verify the status of any specific regu- lations before relying on it as being in final form. For example, changes have already been proposed in the 40 CFR 122 and 146 regulations; if these changes are finalized, then some of the information in this manual may need revision. ------- It Is expected that the manual will be revised as appropriate as policy and regulation changes or additions occur. Any comments that you might have to improve the usefulness or accuracy of the manual are most welcome and should be addressed to: Mr. Donald Gipe Environmental Protection Agency National Enforcement Investigations Center Building 53, Box 25227 Denver Federal Center Denver, CO 80225 phone 303-234-4658, FTS 234-4658 ------- AUTHORITY AND IMPLEMENTATION ------- AUTHORITY AND IMPLEMENTATION The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA, PL 93-523), as amended, charges the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to establish requirements to assure that underground sources of drinking water are protected from endangerment when fluids are placed underground by well injection. The Act delegates primary enforcement authority to the individual states to develop and admin- ister an underground injection control (UIC) program following the federally established requirements. In those instances where a State either elects not to establish and administer a UIC program or the State program does not satisfy the Federal requirements, the EPA must establish and administer the program. Generally, enforcement of environmental controls under the UIC program must await either the development and approval of a State program or, in the absence of a State program, the development of a Federal program. The SDWA does not provide for any "interim status" period during which con- trols could be enforced pending implementation of formal State or Federal UIC programs. However, underground injection wells may be covered by an existing State program. The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA, PL 94-580), as amended, requires that EPA regulate the disposal of hazardous wastes includ- ing the underground injection of hazardous wastes. The RCRA, unlike the SDWA, does provide the authority for control during an "interim status" period pending the development of State regulations or formal Federal programs. When EPA's statutory authorities provide overlapping jurisdiction over certain activities, it is within the discretion of the Administrator to decide which program will be used to regulate the activity. Because UIC enforcement programs pursuant to the SDWA are not now in place, the decision has been made to control the underground injection of hazardous waste during the "interim status" period through the authorities granted EPA under RCRA (Federal Register Vol. 45, No. 98, May 19, 1980). ------- It is currently anticipated that once a UIC program is in place, the RCRA permit for a facility injecting hazardous wastes underground will apply up to the cutoff valve on the injection well head and a UIC permit will then apply to the subsurface injection; if the facility already has a RCRA permit, then the UIC permit will be a "permit by rule". Federal permits issued for injecting wastes underground use procedures established under the consolidated permit program (40 CFR 122 and 124*), which governs permit programs under RCRA, SDWA, and others. The review, assessment, and inspection of individual injection well projects is complicated. The wide range of waste types to be injected re- quires a case-by-case evaluation of the degree of hazard associated with any given fluid. Hazardous waste injection projects require a high degree of assurance that the injection operation will function as designed: that well failure will not occur, that the capacity of the injection zone is adequate to accept the waste, and that the confining strata have sufficient integrity to assure long-term containment of the injected fluid after the injection project is completed. In addition, the proposed injection fluid must be shown to be physically and chemically compatible with fluids exist- ing in the injection zone and with the natural earth materials composing the injection zone. The "area of review", as defined in 40 CFR 146.06, surrounding a well injection project should be determined because the critical area of influ- ence may differ widely, depending on the hydrogeological terrain and pos- sible interference with or from other subsurface operations in the vicinity. For example, if subsurface fluid production in a region has altered the natural fluid pressure regime and groundwater gradients, superposition of pressure caused by an underground injection operation could create a dynamic interaction. This interaction would not be expected if only the influence of the injection operation were considered. The requirements for State consolidated permit programs operated in lieu of EPA are in 40 CFR 123. ------- The review and evaluation of underground waste injection projects re- quires caution and a high degree of assurance so the project can be managed successfully. Once an injection activity has begun, it is, to a large ex- tent, irreversible. If the system fails to operate as designed and an un- derground source of drinking water becomes contaminated, reclaiming the affected aquifer may be impractical. At best, contaminated aquifer recla- mation efforts are exceedingly expensive and require years to decades to accomplish. For these reasons, the proposed injection fluid must be thoroughly characterized, the injection well design and operating procedures clearly defined, and the hydraulic and hydrogeological characteristics of the injec- tion and confining layers well understood. To effectively review and evaluate permit applications for underground injection projects, a broad range of subjects including chemistry, well de- sign and construction, well development and testing, well and formation hydraulics, and hydrogeology is useful. The project reviewer must know when and from whom to seek assistance when that person does not have all of the knowledge and experience to ensure a complete and thorough evaluation of a complex underground injection project. ------- PERMIT PROCEDURES ------- PERMIT PROCEDURES There are a number of general procedural and technical steps that must be followed to develop a permit for the underground injection of wastes. These steps are briefly discussed in the following paragraphs and enumerated in the flow charts beginning on page 13. As noted earlier, these steps are primarily for the injection of hazardous wastes; however, they are also generally applicable to the issuance of any permit for waste injection. Where appropriate, the flow chart refers to processing permit applications for other than injection of hazardous wastes; note, however, that these steps are not applicable until such time as a State or EPA UIC permit pro- gram is approved pursuant to the SOWA and is in effect. REVIEW PART A OF THE PERMIT APPLICATION All generators, owners, or operators of facilities which treat, store, or dispose of hazardous wastes must submit Part A of the consolidated permit forms (Forms I and 3, attached as Appendices 1 and 2). The first step in the permitting process is to examine Part A: (1) to determine if the appli- cant is injecting a hazardous waste underground, and (2) if injecting, to verify the completeness of the application. If the facility is not inject- ing hazardous wastes but otherwise treats, stores, or disposes of hazardous wastes, then a RCRA permit may be appropriate but the processing of that permit would be in accordance with other guidance.* Supplemental information requested from the applicant may be necessary to determine if the injection fluid contains a hazardous contaminant as listed in 40 CFR 261. The applicant must be notified when the application is complete. * See "A-Step-by-Step Approach to Development of NPDES and RCRA Permits", EPA-330/1-81-004, July 1981. ------- COMPILE BACKGROUND INFORMATION A variety of data and reference materials are available to assist the permit writer in reviewing Part A of the permit application and preparing permit conditions. These include RCRA interim status or uncontrolled site inspection reports, annual reports, information in other program files, and technical guidance or reference manuals. This information is also useful in determining supplemental data needs prior to requesting Part B (see be- low). In the case of EPA permits, State files may contain additional data, especially if the State has its own hazardous waste permit program or under- ground injection program. DETERMINE WHEN A UIC PERMIT IS NEEDED: (Note: This section will not be applicable until a State or EPA UIC program, pursuant to the SDWA, is implemented.) All owners and/or operators of existing injection wells must apply for a UIC permit no later than 4 years after approval of a State UIC program or implementation of an EPA-administered program (40 CFR 122.38(b)(l)). If the injected hazardous waste is accompanied by a manifest or contains a hazardous contaminant as listed in 40 CFR 261, Appendix VIII, a UIC permit must be applied for within 6 months after approval of an applicable State program. UIC permit applications are required for new Class I wells, wells sus- pected of contaminating an underground supply of drinking water (USDW), wells operating in violation of existing regulations, and wells needing permits issued by other State or Federal agencies (40 CFR 146.09). Other existing Class I wells may be authorized by rule under RCRA for the interim period (40 CFR 122.37). ------- REQUEST PART B OF THE PERMIT APPLICATION The second phase of the application process is the submission of Part B by the applicant. Unless voluntarily submitted, Part B must be requested by the permitting authority, and the applicant must be given at least 6 months to submit requested data. There is no Part B application form. The data required differ, depend- ing on the type of facility. Required data for each type of facility are defined in 40 CFR 122.25. More specific information requirements are listed in 40 CFR 146, Subpart B. Prior to requesting Part B, the permit writer should determine the specific data required for the facility. These re- quirements should be reviewed for adequacy as additional data may be needed for some complex facilities or unusual cases. Supplemental data is easier to request at this stage than after an inadequate application has been received. Conversely, some required data may not be needed for simpler facili- ties. Waiver of certain data requirements may be possible upon request by the applicant. REVIEW PART B OF THE APPLICATION When Part B is received, it must be reviewed for technical and admini- strative completeness within 30 days for new facilities and 60 days for existing facilities. The applicant is then notified that Part B is com- plete or that supplemental information is required. The adequacy of Part B data is a key to efficient preparation of a comprehensive permit. Thorough review of Part B at this stage is thus very important. A lengthy checklist to assist the permit writer in determining completeness of this review is presented in Table 1. ------- REVIEW CHECKLIST FOR PART B ------- Table 1 REVIEW CHECKLIST FOR PART B OF THE CONSOLIDATED PERMIT APPLICATION Underground Injection Wells I.

In some cases, the background data may adequately supply missing Part B information. A supplemental request or a facility inspection may be necessary in some cases to verify data or compile supplemental information. INSPECT THE FACILITY There are several factors that would indicate the need to inspect the facility prior to permit development. These are: A history of environmental problems A history of noncompliance with interim status standards Available information is inadequate to prepare a permit Large amounts of acutely hazardous or toxic wastes are handled Major land disposal or surface impoundment facilities are present A previous inspection indicates the need for a followup inspection A followup inspection may be needed if the previous inspection did not in- clude observations or documentation of critical activities or data. DETERMINE IF A PERMIT SHOULD BE DENIED When the background and application data and/or inspection observations for existing facilities indicate that the injection well operation cannot assure protection from migration of injected fluids or other formation fluids into underground sources of drinking water, the permit must be denied. Similarly, if the proposed design and construction details for new wells do not ensure protection of underground sources of drinking water, the permit must be denied. CONTENTS OF THE PERMIT 1.

DESCRIPTION AND LOCATION OF INJECTION ACTIVITY (Description of activity (type waste, etc.) (Legal description of location) Injection will be into the (name of formation(s)) in the approximate subsurface interval between ft and ft. The permittee is authorized to conduct injection activity in accordance with the provisions of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, as amended, (the Safe Drinking Water Act, following implementation of a State or EPA VIC program), and with the limitations, requirements, and other conditions set forth in this permit. This permit shall become effective on and shall ex- pire at midnight unless amended or terminated by the Regional Administrator. Signatures ------- 20 PART I: SPECIAL CONDITIONS 1. CONSTRUCTION REQUIREMENTS The permittee is required to set and cement surface casing to a minimum subsurface depth of ft to properly pro- tect all underground supplies of drinking water. Cementing shall be by the method and sufficient grout shall be used to fill the annular space between the hole and surface casing to the surface of the ground. The intermediate casing shall be set and cemented from ft to ft. The long string casing shall be set and cemented from ft to ft. Except as specifically required in the terms of this permit, the drilling and completion of the well shall be done in accordance with the plans and specifications contained in the permit appli- cation. Any proposed significant changes to the plans and speci- fications must be submitted to the Regional Administrator and receive written approval. 2. LOGGING AND TESTING REQUIREMENTS A. The following logs shall be run during the drilling and completion of the well. A descriptive report interpreting the results of the logs shall be prepared by a qualified log analyst and submitted to the Regional Administrator. ------- 21 1. For Surface Casing Hole before the casing Is Installed: [List the type of Jogs to be run (electric, caliper, etc.)] a. _ b. _ c. _ d. _ e. _ After the casing Is Installed: [List the types of logs to be run (cement Jbond, noise, etc.)] f. _ g. _ h. j- 2. For Intermediate and Long String Casing Holes before casing is installed: [List the types of logs to be run (electric, tempera- ture, caliper, etc.)] a. b. c. d. e. and after the casing is installed: [List the types of logs to be run (cement bond, noise, etc.)] f. g- h. i. j- ------- 22 B. Prior to completing the well, the bottom home pressure, bot- tom temperature, and static fluid level shall be determined and a representative sample of formation fluids obtained and analyzed. C. After completion of the well, tests shall be performed to determine the following reservoir characteristics: [List the tests to be conducted in the injection zone (permeability, hydraulic pressure responses, etc.)] 1. 2. 3. 4. D. The permittee shall run compatibility tests of the injected waste with injection zone fluids, and core samples of the injection zone and the confining zone. E. Before any injection can commence, the. permittee shall per- form the following to insure that the well has mechanical integrity. 1. A (full hole temperature or noise log) shall be run to show that there will be no significant fluid movement into USDWs. 2. The surface casing shall be tested to psi for minutes and the long string casing shall be tested to psi for minutes. 3. OPERATING PARAMETERS The maximum rate of injection shall not exceed gallons per minute. The volume of liquid(s) injected shall not exceed gallons per month. (This information may be obtained from evaluation of hydraulic testing and formation pressure response.) ------- 23 The operating injection pressure at the well head shall not exceed psig. (This pressure is selected to give assurance that the down-hole pressure will not be great enough to fracture the confining strata.) The tubing-long string casing annulus shall be filled with a fluid containing corrosion inhibitors, and a differential pressure of at least psig shall be maintained on the annulus to de- tect well malfunctions. (The annulus pressure is always greater than the injection pressure to assure containment of the injection fluid. Sudden changes in annulus pressure and/or annulus fluid inventory indicates a probable casing or tubing failure or a leak- ing packer.) 4. MONITORING (40 CFR 122.11) A. Pressure gages shall be installed and maintained in proper operating conditions at all times on the injection tubing and on the tubing-long string casing annulus at the well head. B. Continuous recording devices shall be installed and main- tained in proper operating conditions at all times to record injection tubing pressures, injection flow rates, injection volumes and tubing-long string casing annulus pressure. C. The mechanical integrity of the well shall be tested every (at least once every 5 years - more often, if deemed neces- sary) year by performing the following: (Caliper log pres- sure test on casing and tubing) 1. 2. ------- 24 D. Injected fluids shall be analyzed (frequency) for the follow- ing parameters: (List contaminants limited by this permit and screen for changes from original waste stream.) 1. 2. 3. E. The monitoring wells identified in the permit application shall be sampled on a (frequency) basis and the samples analyzed for the following-parameters: (List contaminants limited by this permit and other char- acteristic constituents which would indicate migration of other formation fluids such as pressure, etc.) 1. 2. 3. 4. ; 5. COMPLETION REPORT (Newly drilled wells only) The permittee shall submit a notice of completion of construction to the Regional Administrator before commencing injection. As part of the notice, the Permittee shall submit the following information: 1. All available logging and testing data as required in Part I, Section 2. 2. The demonstration of mechanical integrity required in Part I, Section 2-E. 3. Any modification to the permitted operating parameters described in Part I, Section 3. ------- 25 The Regional Administrator will inform the permittee within 13 days of the date of the notice of his intent to inspect or review the injection well. If the Regional Administrator waives his right or does not inform the permittee of his intent within 13 days, the permittee may commence injection. 6. WELL WORKOVERS The permittee shall give notice to the Regional Administrator as soon as possible of any planned workover of the well. The notification shall be in writing and shall include plans for the workover. A complete report of the workover shall be prepared including the reason for the workover and details of the work performed. 7. REPORTING [40 CFR 122.7(1)4] A. The permittee shall file (frequency - suggest quarterly) re- ports within days after the last day of , , , and of each year on: 1. Monthly average, maximum and minimum values for injection pressure, flow rate, volume, and annular pressure. 2. Results of analyses of the injected fluids. 3. Results of the monitoring analyses. The results of periodic tests of mechanical integrity and reports of well workover shall be reported with the first (frequency - e.g., quarterly) report following their completion. B. The permittee shall notify the Regional Administrator at least 180 days before conversion or abandonment of the well. ------- 26 8.

National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permits Under the Clean Water Act. You are not required to obtain an NPDES permit if your discharge it in one of the following categories, as provided by the Clean Water Act ICWA) and by the NPDES regulations (40 CFR Partt 122—1251. However, under Section 510 of CWA a discharge ex- empted from the federal NPDES requirements may still be regulated by a State authority; contact your State environmentel agency to de- termine whether you need a State permit. A. DISCHARGES FROM VESSELS. Discharges of sewage from ves- sels, effluent from properly functioning marine engines, laundry, shower, and galley sink wastes, end any other discharge incidental to the normal operation of a vessel do not require NPDES permits. However, discharges of rubbish, trash, garbage, or other such mater- ials discharged overboard require permits, and so do other discharges when the vessel is operating in a capacity other than as a means of transportation, such as when the vessel is being used as an energy or mining facility, a storage facility, or a seafood processing facility, or is secured to the bed of the ocean, contiguous zone, or waters of the United States for the purpose of mineral or oil exploration or de- velopment. B. DREDGED OR FILL MATERIAL. Discharges of dredged or fill material into waters of the Uniied States do not need NPDES permits if the dredging or filling is authorized by a permit issued by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers or an EPA approved State under Section 404 of CWA. C. DISCHARGES INTO PUBLICLY OWNED TREATMENT WORKS (POTW). The introduction of sewage, industrial wastes, or other pol- lutants into a POTW does not need an NPDES permit. You must comply with all applicable pretreatment standards promulgated under Section 307(b) of CWA, which may be included in the permit issued to the POTW. If you have a plan or an agreement to switch to a POTW in the future, this does not relieve you of the obligation to apply for and receive an NPDES permit until you have stopped discharging pollutants into waters of the United States. (NOTE: Discharger* into privately owned treatment works do not have to apply for or obtain NPDES permit! except at otherwise re- quired by the EPA Regional Administrator. The owner or operator of the treatment works itself, however, must apply for a permit and. identify all users in its application. Users so identified will receive public notice of actions taken on the permit for the treatment works.) D. DISCHARGES FROM AGRICULTURAL AND SILVICULTUR- AL ACTIVITIES. Most discharges from agricultural and silviculture! activities to waters of the United States do not require NPDES per- mits. These include runoff from orchards, cultivated crops, pastures, range lands, and forest lands. However, the discharges listed below do require NPDES permits. Definitions of the terms listed below are contained in the Glossary section of these instructions. 1. Discharges from Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations. (See Glossary for definitions of "animal feeding operations" and "concentrated animal feeding operations." Only the latter require permits.) 2. Discharges from Concentrated Aquatic Animal Production Facilities. (See Glossary for size cutoffs.) 3. Discharges associated with approved Aquaculture Projects. 4. Discharges from Silviculture! Point Sources. (See Glossary for the definition of "silvicultural point source.") Nonpoint source silviculture! activities are excluded from NPDES permit require- ments. However, some of these activities, such as stream crossings for roads, may involve point source discharges of dredged or fill material which may require a Section 404 permit. See 33 CFR 209.120. E. DISCHARGES IN COMPLIANCE WITH AN ON-SCENE CO- ORDINATOR'S INSTRUCTIONS. II. Hazardous Waste Permits Under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. You may be excluded from the requirement to obtain a permit under this program if you fall into one of the following categories: Generators who accumulate their own hazardous waste on—site for less than 90 days as provided in 40 CFR 262.34; Farmers who dispose of hazardous waste pesticide from their own use as provided in 40 CFR 262.S1; Certain persons treating, storing, or disposing of small quantities of hazardous waste as provided in 40 CFR 261.4 or 261.5; and Owners and operators of totally enclosed treatment facilities as de- fined in 40 CFR 260.10. Check with your Regional office for details. Please note that even if you are excluded from permit requirements, you may be required by Federal regulations to handle your waste in a particular manner. III. Underground Injection Control Permits Under the Safe Drinking Water Act. You are not required to obtain a permit under this program if you: Inject into existing wells used to enhance recovery of oil and gas or to store hydrocarbons (note, however, that these underground injec- tions are regulated by Federal rules); or Inject into or above a stretum which contains, within 1/4 mile of the well bore, en underground source of drinking water (unleu your in- jection is the type identified in Item II-H. for which you do need a permit). However, you must notify EPA of your injection and submit certain required information on forms supplied by the Agency, and your operation may be phased out if you are a generator of hazardous wastes or a hazardous waste management facility which uses wells or septic tanks to dispose of hazardous waste. IV. Prevention of Significant Deterioration Permits Under the Clean Air Act. The PSD program applies to newly constructed or modified facilities (both of which are referred to as "new sources") which in- crease eir emissions. The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1977 exclude small new sources of air emissions from the PSO review program. Any new source in an industrial'category listed in Table 3 of these instruc- tions whose potential to emit is less than 100 tons per year is not re- quired to get a PSD permit. In addition, any new source in an industrial category not listed in Table 3 whose potential to emit is less than 250 tons per year is exempted from the PSD requirements, Modified sources which increase their net emissions (the difference between the total emission increases and total emission decreases at the source) less than the significant amount set forth in EPA regulations are also exempt from PSD requirements. Contact your EPA Regionel office (Table 1) for further information. 1-5 ------- SECTION D - GLOSSARY NOTE: This Glossary includes terms used in the instructions and in Forms 1, 2B. 2C, and 3.

STORAGE (in the RCRA program) means the holding of hazardous waste for a temporary period at the end of which the hazardous waste is treated, disposed, or stored elsewhere. STORM WATER RUNOFF means water discharged as a result of rain, snow, or other precipitation. SURFACE IMPOUNDMENT or IMPOUNDMENT means a facility or part of a facility which is a natural topographic depression, manmade excavation, or diked area formed primarily of earthen materials (al- though it may be lined with manmade materials), which is designed to hold an accumulation of liquid wastes or wastes containing free liquids, and which is not an injection well. Examples of surface impoundments are holding, storage, settling, and aeration pits, ponds, and lagoons. TANK (in the RCRA program) means a stationary device, designed to contain an accumulation of hazardous waste which is constructed pre- marily of non-earthen materials (e.g.. wood, concrete, steel, plastic) which provide structural support. 1-8 ------- SECTION O - GLOSSARY (continued) THERMAL TREATMENT (in the RCRA program) meant the treat- ment of hazardous waste in a device which uses elevated temperature at the primary meant to change the chemical, physical, or biological char- acter or composition of the hazardous wane. Examples of thermal treatment processes are incineration, molten salt, pyrolysis. calcination. wet air oxidation, and microwave discharge. (See alto "incinerator"and "open burning"). TOTALLY ENCLOSED TREATMENT FACILITY tin the RCRA pro- gram) means a facility for the treatment of hazardous wane which is di- rectly connected to an industrial production process and which is con- structed and operated in a manner which prevents the release of any hazardous waste or any constituent thereof into the environment dur- ing treatment.

UNDERGROUND INJECTION means well Injection. UNDERGROUND SOURCE OF DRINKING WATER or USDW means an aquifer or its portion which is not an exempted aquifer and: A. Which supplies drinking water for human consumption; or B. In which the ground water contains fewer than 10.000 mg/l to'tal dissolved solids. UPSET means an exceptional incident in which there is unintentional and temporary noncompliance with technology-based permit effluent limitations because of factors beyond the reasonable control of the permittee. An upset does not include noncompliance to the extent caused by operational error, improperly designed treatment facilities, Inadequate treatment facilities, lack of preventive maintenance, or care- less or improper operation.
