Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. South Carolina's closure and post-closure rules for TSDFs parallel the federal requirements. In addition to complying with the general closure and post-closure standards, owners and operators of the various types of TSDFs have to meet closure and post-closure standards specific to their facility types. South Carolina follows the federal rules specific to containers, hazardous waste tanks, hazardous waste landfills, land treatment units, and surface impoundments.

Administration and enforcement. DHEC's Division of Compliance and Enforcement administers and enforces the TSDF closure and post-closure requirements in South Carolina.
