Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Iowa follows the federal closure and post-closure requirements for hazardous waste facilities. See the national section CLOSURE AND POST-CLOSURE PLANS for a review of these rules.

Administration and enforcement. EPA's Region 7 office enforces the closure and post-closure rules in Iowa. In fact, EPA enforces all the RCRA hazardous waste management requirements because the state has not had EPA implementation authorization since 1985 and has no plans to apply for it in the near future.
