  11. 11. Common misconceptions about underground injection <ul><li>You don’t hear much about underground injection so it must not be a common waste disposal technology . </li></ul><ul><li>Underground injection in Class I wells is a very common disposal technology for wastewater. Most people are unaware that approximately nine billion gallons are injected annually because almost 99% is injected in captive wells owned by large industrial generators. To our clients, underground injection is common. Many of them ship millions of gallons to us annually and have done so for many years. </li></ul>www.texasmolecular.com
  12. 12. Common misconceptions about underground injection <ul><li>Class 1 injection wells present a great risk to groundwater. </li></ul><ul><li>Permits for class 1 wells are very stringent. There is a requirement to maintain annulus pressure 100 psi greater than the injection pressure. Should a leak occur in the injection tube, the annulus fluid will be forced by pressure into the injection pipe and permitted formation. Of course there is also cement casing outside the annulus. If annulus pressure is lost, the well is down immediately. </li></ul><ul><li>Normally a workover is required before the well can re-start. The design, operation, and permits for our injection wells act as barriers to groundwater problems. Our compliance with the longstanding and comprehensive EPA Underground Injection Control Program protects surface waters as well as groundwater sources of drinking water. </li></ul><ul><li>An EPA study showed that a nearly impossible chain of events would have to occur in order for a Class 1 injection well’s multi-layered safety systems to fail, and groundwater be impacted. The odds of that happening are one in ten quadrillion. </li></ul>www.texasmolecular.com
