Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Although Illinois has adopted the federal hazardous waste storage rules, including those for on-site storage by generators, the state has added several more stringent regulations. The state's more stringent hazardous waste storage rules are in connection with secondary containment variances for hazardous waste storage tanks, permit requirements, and fees payable by owners and operators of hazardous waste storage facilities.
• Administration and enforcement. IEPA's Division of Land Pollution Control administers and enforces the hazardous waste storage rules in Illinois.
