Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Connecticut's closure and post-closure rules for hazardous waste TSDFs include the federal requirements and the state's additional rules for plan fees. 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. Connecticut follows the federal rules specific to facilities utilizing containers, hazardous waste storage tanks, hazardous waste landfills, land treatment, and surface impoundments.
• Administration and enforcement. DEP's Engineering and Enforcement Division administers and enforces the TSDF closure and post-closure requirements in Connecticut.
CLOSURE AND POST-CLOSURE PLAN FEE
When a TSDF owner or operator submits a closure plan or a post-closure plan to DEP for approval, the state's closure/post-closure plan fee of $4,000 must also be paid.
