Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Tennessee's VOAP was established within TDEC's Division of Superfund by the Hazardous Waste Management Act of 1983 as amended May 9, 1994. The VOAP allows parties to conduct an investigation and, if necessary, a cleanup of an inactive hazardous substance site. It also offers relief from liability under all environmental statutes that is transferable to successors in title.

Tennessee has its own Superfund, known as the Hazardous Waste Remedial Action Fund. The state's Superfund regulations are called the Inactive Hazardous Substance Site Remedial Action Program. For a discussion of Tennessee's Superfund program, see the state section SUPERFUND.
