Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Ohio's leak detection requirements follow federal rules for underground storage tanks (USTs), landfills, surface impoundments, and hazardous waste storage tanks and containers. See the national section LEAK DETECTION for a discussion of federal leak detection requirements. In addition, refer to the state section RELEASE NOTIFICATION to review Ohio's leak response and reporting requirements.
Fugitive volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions are controlled through vapor leak detection and monitoring requirements for specific manufacturing operations. These requirements are regionally dependent. See the state section FUGITIVE EMISSIONS for more information.
• Administration and enforcement. The Ohio EPA enforces the hazardous waste leak detection rules in Ohio, while the BUSTR enforces the UST leak detection rules in the state.
