Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Kansas has incorporated by reference the federal corrective action requirements for hazardous and solid (nonhazardous) waste units at treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs). The state rules also include the federal 2002 rules for corrective action management units (CAMUs), temporary units, and staging piles, including the federal provision that allows placement of CAMU-eligible wastes in off-site hazardous waste landfills. Owners of property with environmental contamination at levels prohibiting unrestricted use may wish to learn about Environmental Use Controls (EUCs), a legal mechanism in Kansas for applying restrictions, prohibitions, and conditions on land use of property that has environmental contamination at levels prohibiting unrestricted use. For information on Kansas's EUCs and how they can make contaminated property more attractive to redevelopment and buyers, see the state section PROPERTY TRANSFER.
