Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Kentucky follows the federal rules for hazardous waste storage facilities and adds rules for permitting such facilities. The additional state permit rules are reviewed in the state section TSDF PERMITS. Kentucky follows the federal rules for generators accumulating hazardous waste on-site without a permit and adds its own requirements in connection with large quantity generators (LQGs) and small quantity generators (SQGs) notifying DEP in the event of a release of hazardous waste.
• Administration and enforcement. Kentucky's hazardous waste storage rules are administered and enforced by DEP's Hazardous Waste Branch.
