Summary:Subsurface injection of liquid waste is used as a disposal method in many parts of the country. Decisions to use subsurface injection are made carefully because, where hydrogeologic conditions are not suitable for injection, the risk to water resources, particularly ground water, could be great. This report presents an elementary guide to subsurface injection and presents subsurface injection practices in Florida as an example of how one State is managing injection.
