Oil and Gas Banner - Underground Injection Control

Quick Links


In 1983, the Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR) received primacy from the US EPA to regulate wells used to inject fluids that are associated with oil and natural gas production operations into the subsurface (Class II UIC wells) in California. A 1988 Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between DOGGR and the State Water Resource Control Board (State Water Board) called for DOGGR to consult with the State and Regional Water Boards (Water Boards) during its consideration of UIC project permitting so the State Water Board could assist DOGGR with the protection of water resources.
