"publish proposed regulations for State underground injection
Scientists have linked Oklahoma's sharp increase in earthquakes to the underground injection
of wastewater by oil and natural-gas companies.
The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA), meanwhile, has extended an emergency underground injection
control well permit to Sugar Camp Energy through December 31, 2016.

control (UIC) programs
As part of this loophole, Congress allowed EPA to retain its authority to prohibit the underground injection
of diesel fuels unless authorized by a Safe Drinking Water Act permit.
Hydrological engineers Gambolati and Teatini set out a detailed and painstakingly researched plan to raise the level of Venice through the underground injection
of sea water.
The agency issued final guidelines to state and federal officials who administer the underground injection
control (UIC) program under the Safe Drinking Water Act.
In some areas, such as portions of the Marcellus Shale region, (17) capacity is limited for wastewater disposal using underground injection
wells (historically, the most common produced-water disposal practice in oil and natural gas fields), and surface discharge of wastewater is an increasingly restricted option.
aimed at further reducing the very rare occurrence of seismicity associated with underground injection
wells is welcomed, and will certainly help enable more responsible natural gas development," said Kathryn Klaber, chief executive of the Marcellus Shale Coalition.
