The undersigned groups submit these comments on the discussion draft Underground Injection Control regulations released on April, 26, 2017.

The discussion draft is a positive step forward, but falls well short of achieving the goals of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) to protect drinking water sources. The UIC Class II program, federally and at the state level, has primarily served as the permitting mechanism to facilitate oil and gas production and wastewater disposal. California must take this opportunity and restore the goals of this program to uphold SDWA and provide adequate protections for drinking water.
