Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. West Virginia has incorporated by reference both the federal closure as well as the post-closure rules for hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs). 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. West Virginia follows the federal rules specific to facilities using containers, hazardous waste storage tanks, surface impoundments, treatment units, and hazardous waste landfills. In addition, the state requires closure and post-closure fees.

Administration and enforcement. DEP's Division of Water and Waste Management administers and enforces the closure and post-closure rules in West Virginia.
