What is the definition of Class V UIC



I am confused as to the EPA definition of municipal Class V underground injection control (UIC) wells?http://www.epa.gov/safewater/uic/classv.html
 
For instance in south Florida FDEP defined municipal Class 1 UIC wells have their effluent migrating into USDW according to the EPA which is their definition for municipal Class V UIC wells.

I've contacted EPA Region 4 on this but no response.
 
Are Florida's municipal Class 1 UIC wells technically EPA defined municipal Class V UIC wells if their nonhazardous effluent is discharged into USDW?
 
Thank you for your assistance.
