The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has extended to June 22, the
public comment period on a proposed Class II injection well in Manistee

EPA initially provided notice of the public comment period and a planned
public meeting for this permit action on March 25, however, that meeting
was postponed. The public meeting has been rescheduled for June 8 and
EPA has extended the public comment period to June 22.

Jordan Development Co. of Traverse City has applied for a permit to own
and operate an enhanced oil recovery injection well. It intends to inject
fresh water into a rock formation 4,964 feet below ground. The company
also has applied for a well permit from the Michigan Department of
Environmental Quality.

The Safe Drinking Water Act requires EPA to regulate the underground
injection of fluids to protect the quality of underground sources of drinking
water. Issuing permits is one way that EPA meets this requirement. For

How to submit a comment
EPA encourages comments from the public on the
proposed permit for a Class II injection well. EPA
must receive your comments on this proposed permit
by the close of business on June 22, 2011.

If you attend the June 8 public hearing, you may submit
a written comment or make an oral comment at the
hearing.  EPA will make a transcript of the hearing
available to the public.

You may also mail, or email,  a written comment to the
EPA permit writer (see box, Page 1), or send it to the
Direct Implementation  Section (Attn: Lisa Perenchio),
at the same address.

Please note that EPA does not have the authority to
change the surface location of the injection well.
Therefore, address any  issues regarding surface
facilities, such as the location of the proposed injection
well, MDEQ, P.O. Box 30256, Lansing, MI 48909, or
call 517-241-1515.
What is a Class II well?
A Class II enhanced recovery well is used to inject
fluids into the ground to increase production of nearby
oil production wells. The injected fluid drives oil within
the oil producing rock formation toward the oil
production wells which extract the oil from the ground.
EPA does not regulate oil production wells.

Jordan Development is seeking a permit for an Class II
enhanced recovery well. It plans to inject fresh water
into the oil-bearing formation to recover residual oil.

Appeal Process
To preserve your right to appeal the final permit
decision, you must either participate in the public
hearing or send written comments  on the draft permit
decision. The appeal process does not begin until after
EPA has reviewed and responded to public comments
received on the draft permit and issues the final permit.
The Response to Comments will provide more
information on the appeal process.
