Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Michigan follows the federal corrective action regulations, revised by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 2002, for hazardous and solid (nonhazardous) waste units, including staging piles, corrective action management units (CAMUs), and temporary units (TUs). The state also follows the less stringent federal provision regarding placement of CAMU-eligible wastes in off-site hazardous waste landfills (MAC r. 299.9639).
