Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Texas follows the federal corrective action regulations for hazardous and solid (nonhazardous) waste units with additional state provisions, including those in connection with groundwater and point of compliance requirements at treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs). The state's point of compliance requirements for the TSDFs are more stringent than the federal rules. TSDF owners and operators in Texas must comply with Texas's point of compliance definition.

Texas has adopted by reference the rules, revised by the U.S Environmental Protection Agency in 2002, for corrective action management units (CAMUs), temporary units (TUs), and staging piles. The state's adoption of the 2002 CAMU rules includes the less stringent federal provision regarding placement of CAMU-eligible wastes in off-site hazardous waste landfills.
