It was initially installed in 2010, with an additional expansion in 2014. The 2014 expansion involved 13 replacement wells and 2 new wells in an active cell. Around 70% of the Class I disposal areas have physical wellfield coverage, with well spacing averaging 150 to 200 feet. A 2016 expansion added four more vertical wells and five horizontals.
