Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Minnesota has incorporated the federal contingency plan requirements for hazardous waste generators, permitted hazardous waste treatment, storage and disposal facilities (TSDFs), and interim-status TSDFs and large quantity generators (LQGs). The state specifies what entities must be notified in the event that the contingency plan is implemented and adds a provision concerning notification before resuming operations.
• Administration and enforcement. The Land and Air Compliance Section of MPCA's Industrial Division administers and enforces the contingency plan requirements in Minnesota.
