Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Ohio has its own remedial response program, similar to the federal Superfund, set up to fund hazardous waste site cleanups. However, unlike the federal Superfund rules, which apply broadly to hazardous substance release sites, the state rules apply only to hazardous waste sites.

Environmental liability under Ohio statutes differs from CERCLA. In Ohio, liability is proportional based on the degree of responsibility and most recent use of the property.
