Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Oregon generally follows the federal financial responsibility requirements, with additional requirements for hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs), solid waste disposal facilities, waste tire storage facilities, underground storage tank (UST) facilities, and licensed pesticide businesses. Oregon does not have a trust fund but has "state only" funds that can only be used for site cleanup purposes. UST owners cannot use the fund to fulfill federal financial responsibility requirements.

Administration and enforcement. The DEQ administers and enforces the financial responsibility requirements for TSDFs and USTs in Oregon. The ODA administers and enforces regulations that pertain to licensed pesticide businesses.
