Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Virginia has adopted the federal leak detection system rules. Virginia's pollution control rules include leak detection standards as a safeguard for preventing spills, releases, and unnecessary contamination. The specific leak detection system standards vary depending on the type of unit or facility. See the national section LEAK DETECTION for a review of general and federal leak detection requirements.

Landfills and surface impoundments. All hazardous waste landfills and surface impoundments have to have a leak detection system as part of their liner system. See the state sections LANDFILLS and SURFACE IMPOUNDMENTS for additional guidance.

Hazardous waste containers. Containers, such as 55-gallon drums or barrels, storing hazardous waste are required to have a containment system for leak detection. For information on those containment system requirements, see the state section CONTAINERS
