Injection Closed-Loop Groundwater Remediation Wells (non-discharge type remediation)

Non-discharge groundwater remediation systems are groundwater treatment systems that extract and treat contaminated groundwater. These include closed-loop groundwater remediation systems and typically use infiltration galleries or injection wells. This type of groundwater remediation system, which withdraws, treats, and then re-injects treated groundwater back into the aquifer, is permitted per 15A NCAC 02C .0225 (b).
