Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Utah follows the federal requirements for managing hazardous waste tanks, which include air emissions standards and standards applicable to owners and operators of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs). TSDFs that use hazardous waste tanks for storage or treatment must comply with additional permit application requirements, including an application fee. The state's more stringent permit standards are reviewed in the state section TSDF PERMITS.
Utah has adopted the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule, effective in Utah as of August 31, 2017, which includes standards for generators accumulating hazardous waste on-site in tanks.
• Administration and enforcement. The Utah Department of Environmental Quality's (DEQ) Division of Waste Management and Radiation Control administers and enforces the hazardous waste tank rules in the state.
