Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Ohio's closure and post-closure rules for hazardous waste TSDFs are the same as the federal requirements. In addition to complying with the general closure and post-closure standards, owners and operators of the various types of TSDFs must meet closure and post-closure standards specific to their facility types. Ohio follows the federal rules specific to hazardous waste containers, tanks, surface impoundments, land treatment units, and hazardous waste landfills.
• Administration and enforcement. OEPA's Division of Hazardous Waste Management administers and enforces the TSDF closure and post-closure requirements in Ohio.
