NOTICE: Recently the Petroleum Restoration Program published a memorandum concerning an exemption from well permitting by the Water Management Districts for injection wells which are under the regulatory purview of the Underground Injection Control (UIC) program. It has subsequently been determined that in situ sparging wells are also considered to be UIC wells and therefore qualify for the exemption from Water Management District permitting. As a consequence, it will be necessary to report the proposed installation of in situ sparging wells to the UIC Section in a similar manner as other UIC wells that will be used for aquifer remediation are reported. Below is the revised memorandum describing the category of wells which qualify for the exemption from WMD permitting along with a template memorandum for reporting proposed in situ sparging wells to the UIC section. At the time of approval of a Remedial Action Plan (RAP) the memo must be completed by an FDEP staff person and forwarded to the UIC section along with a copy of the RAP Approval Order.

Update [11/27/12]: A table is also provided below to clarify the circumstances when approval to install a UIC well requires a Department Order to be issued and when the UIC notification memo needs to be prepared.
