Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Washington follows the federal corrective action requirements for solid waste management units at hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs), with additional state provisions in connection with permit modifications and point of compliance. The state also follows the federal 2002 rules for CAMUs, TUs, and staging piles, including the provisions for CAMUs that allow placement of CAMU-eligible wastes in off-site landfills. Washington expands this CAMU rule to include both off-site dangerous waste landfills in the state as well as out-of-state hazardous waste landfills. See the national section CORRECTIVE ACTION to review the federal 2002 rules.
