Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. New York's closure and post-closure rules for hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) parallel the federal requirements, with additional provisions in connection with submission of the closure plan, notification for closure and post-closure, and financial assurance requirements.

In addition to complying with the general closure and post-closure standards, owners or operators of the various types of TSDFs have to meet closure and post-closure standards specific to their facility types. New York follows the federal rules specific to facilities using containers, hazardous waste storage tanks, hazardous waste landfills, land treatment units, and surface impoundments.

Administration and enforcement. The New York Department of Environmental Conservation's (DEC) Division of Environmental Remediation administers and enforces the TSDF closure and post-closure requirements in New York.
