Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Kentucky has established a pollution prevention (P2) program designed to encourage source reduction by providing technical assistance and economic incentives to hazardous waste generators. For additional information about the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) federal P2 program, see the national section POLLUTION PREVENTION.
Kentucky follows the federal regulations that require stormwater pollution prevention plans for stormwater discharges from certain industrial sites. For additional information, see the national section STORMWATER—GENERAL.
Federal oil pollution prevention rules require that regulated oil storage facilities develop and implement an oil spill prevention, control, and countermeasure (SPCC) plan. See the national SPILL PREVENTION—SPCC PLAN section for more information.
• Administration and enforcement. DEP's Division of Waste Management administers and enforces the state's P2 program.
