Waste Management Springhill Regional Landfill UIC Exploratory Well



Waste Management , Inc., applied on Aug. 15, 2016 to construct an exploratory underground injection control (UIC) well to determine the feasibility of deep well disposal as an alternative disposal method of non-hazardous landfill leachate generated at the Springhill Regional Landfill.

After thorough review, the department prepared a draft permit. This draft permit and a public meeting were announced in the Jackson County Floridan on March 11, 2017, and the Florida Administrative Register on March 22, 2017.  A public meeting was held on April 18, 2017.

The proposed permit will only authorize construction of an exploratory well and one monitoring well to determine whether or not a UIC well would be feasible in the proposed area. The proposed exploratory well permit is not an operational permit, and does not allow injection into the well or disposal of leachate during the exploratory phase.
