Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. South Carolina follows the federal corrective action regulations for hazardous and solid (nonhazardous) waste units. The state rules also include the federal 2002 rules for corrective action management unit (CAMUs), temporary units (TUs), and staging piles, including the federal provision that allows placement of CAMU-eligible wastes in off-site hazardous waste landfills.

South Carolina has state provisions for risk-based corrective action (RBCA) at petroleum underground storage tank (UST) sites.

Administration and enforcement. DHEC's Division of Waste Management administers and enforces corrective action requirements for TSDFs and sites contaminated with hazardous waste. DHEC's Bureau of Land and Waste Management administers and enforces RBCA requirements for UST sites.
