Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Kentucky has incorporated by reference the federal requirements for tanks that store or treat hazardous waste, including the federal organic air emissions standards. In addition, owners and operators of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) that use hazardous waste tanks must comply with additional permit application requirements and pay several state permit fees. The state's more stringent permit standards and fees are reviewed in the state section TSDF PERMITS.

Administration and enforcement. DEP's Division of Waste Management administers and enforces the hazardous waste tank requirements in Kentucky.
