How long can a disposal well operate?

Disposal wells can operate as long as the injection formation will take water below the maximum allowed pressure. If the injection formation should pressure up at some point, another zone in the well can usually be located and permitted. It is not uncommon for disposal wells to operate for more than 40 years.
