Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. New Jersey has adopted by reference the federal corrective action regulations for hazardous and solid (nonhazardous) waste management units, as well as the rules, revised by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency 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. The state also has regulations for corrective action at sanitary (solid (nonhazardous) waste) landfills.

Administration and enforcement. DEP's Solid and Hazardous Waste Management Program administers and enforces the corrective action rules in New Jersey.
