Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Montana has adopted by reference the federal hazardous waste storage rules including those for generators accumulating hazardous waste on-site without a permit. Owners and operators of hazardous waste storage facilities must comply with additional permit application requirements including a state permit application fee. The state's more stringent permit standards are reviewed in the state section TSDF PERMITS.
• Administration and enforcement. DEQ's Waste and Underground Tank Management Bureau administers and enforces the hazardous waste storage rules in Montana.
