Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Kentucky has adopted by reference the federal contingency plan requirements for hazardous waste TSDFs and LQGs. Because the state regulations do not incorporate by reference the most recent federal regulations, Kentucky retains a federal contingency plan requirement that was subsequently deleted when the federal rules were revised in 2006.
• Administration and enforcement. DEP's Division of Waste Management administers and enforces the contingency plan requirements in Kentucky.
Kentucky retains the provision, deleted in the federal regulation in 2006, that requires the facility owner or operator to notify DEQ and other appropriate state and local authorities that the facility is in compliance with 40 CFR 264.56(h) (regarding cleaned emergency equipment and completed cleanup procedures) before resuming operations in the affected areas of the facility.
