Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Alabama's requirements concerning security for air toxics are covered in the state's accidental release prevention program, which follows the federal requirements. See the national section RISK MANAGEMENT PROGRAM for more information.
Alabama follows the federal rules for the security of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) in connection with facility security during the life of the TSDF and during a disposal facility's post-closure care period. Alabama also follows the federal rules for storage of hazardous waste munitions and explosives. Similar to the federal rules for municipal solid waste landfills (MSWLFs), the state rules for owners and operators of solid (nonhazardous) waste disposal facilities in Alabama require the avoidance of unauthorized access to the facility. A similar standard must also be met by solid (nonhazardous) waste processing facilities. The state rules for the storage of solid waste military munitions follow the federal rules.
