Permit Application Fees:
Utah Underground Injection Control (UIC) Program

The Utah Underground Injection Control (UIC) Program for Class I, III, IV, and V injection wells requires permit application fees for certain subclasses of injection wells. Permit application fees were approved by the Utah legislature during the 2011 general legislative session. The permit application fee covers the time UIC staff spend in assisting the permit applicant in preparing an adequate application, conducting a completeness review of the application, preparing a draft permit for public comment, responding to public comments, and issuing the final permit.

Class I Permit Application Fees

  • Hourly fee of $100 per hour

Class III Permit Application Fees

  • Hourly fee of $100 per hour

Class V Permit Application Fees

  • Hourly fee of $100 per hour for permits
  • A $200 flat fee for selected subclass well inventories authorized by rule

Payment of UIC Permit Application Fees

Upon receipt of permit applications for these types of injection wells, DWQ will track staff time and prepare quarterly invoices for the time charged towards permit application processing and permit creation.
