Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Tennessee has adopted the federal surface impoundment requirements, including the organic air emissions standards. In addition, Tennessee requires owners and operators of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) using surface impoundments to comply with state permit application requirements, including stringent facility location standards that go beyond the federal requirements for TSDF permits. Unlike under the federal rules, permitted facilities with surface impoundments in Tennessee must pay various permit fees as well as an annual facility maintenance fee. For a review of the state permit requirements and fees, see the state section TSDF PERMITS.

Administration and enforcement. The state's surface impoundment rules are administered and enforced by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation's Division of Solid and Hazardous Waste Management.
