Comparison: State vs. Federal
· Rules. Virginia has adopted by reference the federal hazardous waste tank regulations but replaces certain compliance deadlines with its own deadlines (all of which have passed) and adds requirements regarding reports submitted in the event of tank leaks and spills. In addition, owners and operators of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) that use tanks to store or treat hazardous waste must comply with the state's permit certification requirements and pay state permit application and permit certification fees. Refer to the state section TSDF PERMITS for information on the permitting process and fees.
· Administration and enforcement. DEQ's Waste Division administers and enforces the hazardous waste tank requirements in Virginia.
