Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Oregon has adopted by reference the federal corrective action requirements for hazardous and solid (nonhazardous) waste units at treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs). The state rules also incorporate the federal 2002 rules for CAMUs, TUs, and staging piles, including the federal provision that allows placement of CAMU-eligible wastes in off-site hazardous waste landfills. See the national section CORRECTIVE ACTION to review these rules. In addition, DEQ requires its department costs be covered by any permitted TSDF required to perform corrective action.

The corrective action rules for USTs follow state provisions in connection with a mandatory corrective action plan and permit requirements for USTs that are decommissioned.

Administration and enforcement. DEQ's Land Quality Division administers and enforces the corrective action requirements for both TSDFs and USTs.
