GWPC Conducts Utah Class II Peer Review

Report Now Available Online

GWPC announces the publication of the first Class II UIC program peer review conducted under the revamped peer review process. This process, a joint GWPC and States First initiative, is designed to assist states by evaluating their Class II UIC programs, recognizing the positive aspects of a program, and offering suggestions for improvement. This review of the State of Utah, which was conducted in November, 2015 by a team of Class II program managers from other state programs and overseen by the GWPC, is the first of what GWPC hopes will be a series of state reviews to be conducted in the future.  
We would like to thank the State of Utah and the staff of the Division of Oil, Gas, and Mining for their assistance to the review team and we look forward to working with other states as we move forward into 2016 and beyond.

Excerpt: "The Ground Water Protection Council, a nongovernmental entity based in Oklahoma City, also has secured funding from the U.S. Department of Energy to build an electronic database to track disposal well activity. It will be available to regulators and researchers from all across the country who are studying Oklahoma earthquakes, so we can make informed decisions to help reduce seismic activity.

Those expenditures are necessary, given the threat increasing seismic activity poses to Oklahoma residents, their property, state infrastructure and the state's economy."
