Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. The federal corrective action requirements for hazardous and solid (nonhazardous) waste units are in effect in Maryland. The state has not yet adopted the 2002 federal CAMU, TU, and staging pile rules into its regulations. However, these federal rules are in effect in Maryland because they were promulgated under the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA) to the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).

Administration and enforcement. MDE's Land Management Administration administers and enforces all the corrective action requirements, except for the federal CAMU, TU, and staging pile rules, which are administered by EPA's Region 3 office until MDE is authorized by EPA to do so. The federal CAMU, TU, and staging pile standards are reviewed in the national section CORRECTIVE ACTION.
