In addition, owners and operators of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) that use surface impoundments must comply with additional permit application requirements and pay several state permit and facility fees. The state's more stringent permit standards and fees are reviewed in the state section TSDF PERMITS.

Administration and enforcement. DEM's Office of Compliance and Inspection administers and enforces the rules for hazardous waste surface impoundments in Rhode Island. EPA's Region 1 office administers and enforces the federal air emissions standards in Rhode Island.
