Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. North Carolina generally adopts federal leak detection requirements with additional pollution control rules that apply to leak detection for hazardous waste landfills and surface impoundments, solid waste transporters, and aboveground and underground storage tanks. See the national section LEAK DETECTION for a review of general and federal leak detection requirements.

North Carolina has adopted the federal hazardous waste tank and container requirements, including requirements for a secondary containment. In addition, to ensure that hazardous waste stored in tanks does not contribute to air pollution, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires hazardous waste storage tanks to have airtight coverings and vapor control devices. See the national sections CONTAINERS and HAZWASTE STORAGE AND TREATMENT TANKS for additional information.

Administration and enforcement. Various DENR Divisions enforce the leak detection rules in North Carolina.
