Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Arkansas follows the federal rules for closure and post-closure of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs). The state has also adopted the federal provisions for allowing unpermitted facilities to obtain enforceable documents in lieu of a post-closure permit (AR Reg. 23.265.121).

In addition to complying with the general closure and post-closure standards, owners or operators of the various types of TSDFs have to meet closure and post-closure standards specific to their facility types. Arkansas follows the federal facility-specific rules. However, unlike the federal rules, Arkansas requires a closure plan fee and a post-closure care permit fee. See the state section TSDF PERMITS for more information on these fees.

See the state section SOLID WASTE for closure and post-closure requirements for solid waste facilities.

Administration and enforcement. DEQ's Hazardous Waste Division administers and enforces the closure and post-closure rules in Arkansas.
