|Seismic Monitoring||Install and operate the seismic recording array to obtain baseline seismic data and record seismic events due to injection activity.|
|Mitigation Plans||Develop a plan to control the level and impact of locally induced seismicity based on the hazard and risk assessment and baseline seismic data.||Revise mitigation plan as appropriate based on any additional information obtained during the drilling and completion of the injection well.||Continuously review and assess mitigation plan to determine effectiveness.|
NOTE: The entire protocol would apply to injection wells proposed in areas where induced seismicity has actually occurred. In areas where induced seismicity was not expected but later occurred, the shaded requirements would apply as revisions to the original injection permit.
