In Idaho, construction features like dry wells, seepage beds, infiltration trenches, infiltration galleries and French drains are collectively known as shallow injection wells. Storm water runoff from paved surfaces is the most common type of fluid disposed of using shallow injection wells, but these features are used for disposal of a variety of fluids, including industrial process water, heat pump return flow, etc. The Idaho Department of Water Resources (IDWR) manages shallow injection wells in Idaho through the Underground Injection Well Program (UIC) under a primacy agreement with the United States Environmental Protection Agency. The Central District Health is involved in monitoring these features.
