Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Missouri has incorporated by reference the federal contingency plan requirements for hazardous waste large quantity generators (LQGs) and treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) and has an additional requirement in connection with notification by permitted TSDFs.
• Administration and enforcement. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources' (DNR) Division of Environmental Quality administers and enforces the contingency plan requirements in Missouri.
Once a contingency plan has been implemented, the federal rules require the TSDF's emergency coordinator to notify immediately either the National Response Center at 800icial designated as the on-scene coordinator for that geographical area. Missouri requires the on-scene coordinator to be one of the following and identified as such by the emergency coordinator in his or her report:
DNR's emergency response coordinator at 573-634-2436, or
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 7 Emergency Planning and Response Branch at 913-236-3778.
