tab Underwater Injection Control Program

The FDEP Southwest District regulates underground injection control (UIC) wells in the following counties: Citrus, Hardee, Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, and Polk.

The Southwest District permits non-major Class V wells (such as closed-loop heat pump/air conditioning return flow wells and stormwater wells). All other wells, including Class I wells and major Class V wells (such as aquifer storage and recovery, aquifer recharge, exploratory, and reverse osmosis), are permitted by the Aquifer Protection Program in the FDEP’s Tallahassee Office.
