GROUND WATER BRANCH TECHNICAL MEMORANDUM NO. 77.05

Subject:  PUBLICATIONS - Ohio River Valley Sanitation Commission
                         reports on Injection of waste water:
                         1. Registry of Wells for Use in
                         Underground Injection of Wastewater 1972-
                         1975. -- 2. Evaluation of the Ohio Valley
                         Region Basal Sandstone as a Wastewater
                         Injection Interval.

The Ohio River Valley Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO) prepared the
enclosed two reports covering (1) data on 37 wells used for
injection in the eight Ohio Valley States and (2) an evaluation of
the principal injection zone in the eight-state region.  Both
reports were partly supported by grants from the Geological
Survey's program of subsurface waste-storage studies.  The second
report was a cooperative effort of the State Geological Surveys
with the leadership of Don Warner, Department of Mining, Petroleum
and Engineering Geology of the University of Missouri at Rolla.

These reports are companions to the two ORSANCO reports which were
distributed by Ground Water Branch Technical Memorandum No. 74.11

Additional copies of any of the four reports can be obtained from
the Ground Water Branch.
