Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Kentucky generally follows the federal financial responsibility requirements, with additional requirements for hazardous waste storage and disposal facilities (TSDFs), solid waste facilities, and pesticide dealers.

Underground storage tank (UST) owners and operators in Kentucky must meet federal and state financial responsibility requirements. To assist owners and operators, the state has established a UST financial responsibility fund to help cover the costs of handling releases. See the national section UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS for a review of the federal financial responsibility rules.

Administration and enforcement. The DEP administers and enforces the financial responsibility requirements for TSDFs, solid waste facilities, pesticide dealers, and UST facilities. The KDA administers and enforces the financial assurance requirements for pesticide dealers.

State Requirements

FINANCIAL ASSURANCE

In Kentucky, there are several financial assurance mechanisms that owners or operators may use alone, or in combination, to demonstrate that they meet financial responsibility requirements sufficient to cover costs of the cleanup of environmental damage caused by a spill or a leak, and third-party claims of personal injury or property damage.
