Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Washington's tank rules include both federal and more stringent state requirements. The state's more stringent requirements are in connection with marking tanks, location standards, tank integrity assessments, inspections, and toxic air emissions as they apply to hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs), large quantity generators (LQGs), and medium quantity generators (MQGs).
• Administration and enforcement. The Washington Department of Ecology's (WDOE) Hazardous Waste and Toxics Reduction Program administers and enforces the dangerous waste tank requirements in Washington.
