Need to Register a Dry Well?

Dry wells are considered by the US EPA as Class V injection wells, defined as a conduit for non-hazardous fluids that is deeper than it is wide.  Dry wells serving properties other than single-family homes are subject to the US EPA Underground Injection Control (UIC) regulations.  Dry well registration will help maintain groundwater quality by ensuring dry wells are installed in a suitable location and are properly closed when they are no longer in use.
