  2. § 096-543-2 - Classification of wells
  3. § 096-543-3 - Prohibited discharges
  4. § 096-543-4 - Licensed discharges

SUMMARY: This chapter describes the regulatory requirements for subsurface wastewater discharges. Subsurface discharges are divided into six categories based on pollutants. Each subsurface discharge is then placed into one of four regulatory categories: authorized under the State Plumbing Code, required to obtain an individual waste discharge license (WDL), authorized to discharge by meeting the conditions of this rule (license by rule (LBR)), or prohibited. This chapter is the state's companion rule to the federal Underground Injection Control Program ( 40 CFR, Part 144 ) and repeals and replaces the rule originally adopted in 1983.
