Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Alabama follows the federal corrective action requirements for hazardous and solid (nonhazardous) waste units at treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs), as well as the rules, revised by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 2002, for CAMUs, TUs, and staging piles. The state's adoption of the 2002 CAMU rules includes the less stringent federal provision at Ala. Admin. Code r 335-14-5-.19(6) regarding placement of CAMU-eligible wastes in off-site hazardous waste landfills. See the national section CORRECTIVE ACTION to review these rules.
