Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Kansas incorporates by reference the federal permit rules, including the remedial action plan (RAP) rules and the provisions for standardized permits. The state has several additional rules in connection with a permit application disclosure statement, notification on the facility's deed, restrictive covenants and easements, and facility operating fees.
• Administration and enforcement. KDHE's Bureau of Waste Management administers and enforces the hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facility (TSDF) permit requirements in Kansas.
