NOTICE: Recently the Bureau of Petroleum Storage Systems 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.
