· Rules. Idaho adopts by reference the federal hazardous waste storage rules for hazardous waste storage facilities (permitted and interim status) and for on-site storage by hazardous waste large quantity generators (LQGs) and small quantity generators (SQGs). In addition, Idaho requires notification by generators in the event of a fire, explosion, or release.

In addition, the state follows the federal requirements for generators accumulating hazardous waste on-site without a permit through its adoption of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule, effective in Idaho as of May 2, 2018. To these federal requirements, Idaho adds requirements concerning notification by hazardous waste large quantity generators (LQGs) and small quantity generators (SQGs) in the event of a fire, explosion, or release.
