Project Title & Description
UIC Class V Injection Well Assessments
This agreement supports the Nassau County Department of Health in its efforts to protect underground drinking water supplies throughout the County by monitoring wells used to discharge liquid wastes directly into the ground. This program focuses on "Class V Injection Wells" which includes septic systems, stormwater drainage wells, community cesspools, and other commercial drains that discharge into the ground. Particular emphasis will be placed on wells from auto shops, dry cleaners and other industries. Underground water supplies are the sole source of drinking water for Nassau County residents and this program helps ensure
that this supply continues to be protected.
