Injection wells remain controversial among citizens concerned that leaks from these wells may contaminate groundwater.

In today's meeting, the Middle Trinity Groundwater District will discuss the possible changes to its policy regarding waste injection wells to prevent contamination of drinking water resources.

Wastes include hazardous materials, brine from oil and gas operations, automotive, industrial, sanitary, and other chemicals injected into shallow aquifers.

The board will receive an update on Genuine Parts' request for a Municipal Setting Designation (MSD) for contamination cleanup at the former Rayloc facility.

Information gathered for a MTGCD meeting facility will be presented by the real estate committee.

Other business scheduled is payment of bills, income/expense comparisons, and the manager's report.

The meeting will begin at 1 p.m. at the Dublin City Council Chambers, located at 213 E. Blackjack.
