Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Connecticut has adopted the federal hazardous waste storage rules and added several stricter rules. The state's more stringent hazardous waste storage rules apply to containers, storage tanks, and generators accumulating hazardous waste on-site.
In addition, and unlike the federal rules, Connecticut requires owners and operators of hazardous waste storage facilities to pay fees.
See the following state sections CONTAINERS, HAZWASTE STORAGE AND TREATMENT TANKS, TSDF PERMITS, and TSDF RESPONSIBILITIES for more information on requirements for owners and operators of treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs).
• Administration and enforcement. DEEP's Bureau of Materials Management and Compliance Assurance administers and enforces the hazardous waste storage rules in Connecticut.
