This panel will discuss the current status and issues involving Florida’s underground injection control (UIC) regulatory program that authorizes the injection of fluids into underground formations and aquifer recharge projects. The panel will focus on the expanded use of aquifer storage and recovery and aquifer recharge projects involving potable, surface water/stormwater, or reclaimed water to enhance water supplies. The panel will cover changes to underground injection and aquifer recharge resulting from DEP’s recent indirect potable reuse regulations. Additionally, the panel will discuss the recent US Supreme Court Maui decision and the subsequent EPA Maui Guidance to determine when an NPDES permit may be required for groundwater injection projects. Finally, the use of exemptions and variances to obtain UIC approvals for these projects will be examined. Overcoming issues and impediments to obtaining UIC authorizations for deep well disposal of waste streams will also be discussed. Come prepared to listen, learn, and participate!
