Annotation: The EPA has released an interpretive memorandum to clarify Underground Injection Control (UIC) program requirements under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), for underground injection of diesel fuels in hydraulic fracturing for oil and gas extraction. The agency has also released technical guidance containing recommendations for EPA permit writers to consider in implementing these UIC Class II requirements. This webpage provides the revised guidance as well as the draft guidance: permitting guidance for oil and gas hydraulic fracturing activities using diesel fuels.
