Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Florida has incorporated by reference 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 (EPA) in 2002, for corrective action management units (CAMUs), temporary units (TUs), and staging piles. The state's adoption of the 2002 CAMU rules includes the less stringent federal provision at 40 CFR 264.555 regarding placement of CAMU-eligible wastes in off-site hazardous waste landfills. See the national section CORRECTIVE ACTION to review the federal rules for CAMUs, TUs, and staging piles.

Florida has additional rules regarding risk-based corrective action (RBCA) that make its rules more stringent than its federal counterparts.

Administration and enforcement. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) administers and enforces all of the corrective action and RBCA requirements in Florida.
