WATER QUALITY ALERT SYSTEM 2
Water Quality Alert System for Detection of Brine Spills from Brine Injection Well in Torch,
Ohio
Water quality alert systems are important tools that safeguard the lives of vulnerable
individuals and organisms that may be exposed to contaminated water. While it is important to
issue alerts in case of interruptions of water quality, the effectiveness of these alerts is largely
dependent on the individuals who access this information. Impliedly, a haphazard issuance of
alerts may have minimal impact in curtailing an emergency. Therefore, information should
mainly focus on individuals who can stop the spread of the calamity, those who are in the
affected area, and emergency and rescue teams. A brine injection well is simply an underground
injection of fluids into the subsurface through a well bore. The brine injection method has been
observed to be a safe and efficient method of disposing of brine in the oil and gas industry.
Nonetheless, just like any system, it may fail from time to time. Accordingly, there is always a
need to measure and alert necessary individuals in case of these failures. This paper will discuss
on how to implement a water quality alert using e-mails, and text messages in the case of a brine
spill from a brine injection well in Torch, Ohio.
Overview of an Injection Well
In general, an injection well is simply an underground injection of fluids into the
subsurface through the well bore. There are three subclasses of Class 2 injection wells, salt-water
disposal wells, enhanced oil recovery (EOR) wells, and hydrocarbon storage wells. In the
production of oil, there is usually a need to purify the oil and salt-water mixture. In fact, there is
usually an average of 10 barrels of salt water for every barrel of crude oil (Ground Water
Protection Council, 2016). The resultant purification of this mixture results in the emergence of
