Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Kentucky has incorporated by reference the federal corrective action requirements for hazardous and solid (nonhazardous) waste units at TSDFs, as well as the federal rules for corrective action management units (CAMUs), temporary units (TUs), and staging piles. The state also requires fees for reviewing a Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) facility investigation plan or a corrective action plan.
See the national section CORRECTIVE ACTION to review the federal rules for CAMUs, TUs, and staging piles.
• Administration and enforcement. The Department for Environmental Protection's (DEP) Division of Waste Management administers and enforces all of the corrective action requirements in Kentucky.
