Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. West Virginia has adopted by reference the federal hazardous waste storage rules for both permitted treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) and generators accumulating hazardous waste on-site without a storage permit.
In addition, West Virginia has its own more stringent requirements for hazardous waste TSDF storage permits, including the requirement to pay various permit and facility fees. See the state section TSDF PERMITS for more information on permits for storage facilities.
• Administration and enforcement. DEP's Division of Water and Waste Management administers and enforces the hazardous waste storage rules in West Virginia.
