Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Kansas incorporates by reference the federal hazardous waste treatment rules and has additional and more stringent requirements relating to treatment facility permits. Unlike the federal rules, Kansas requires treatment facilities to pay various state facility fees. As under the federal rules, Kansas allows hazardous waste generators to treat hazardous waste on-site without a permit.
• Administration and enforcement. KDHE's Division of Environment administers and enforces the hazardous waste treatment requirements in Kansas.
FACILITY PERMIT STANDARDS
Kansas's permit application and permit modification requirements for hazardous waste facilities incorporate the federal permit rules, with additional state rules in connection with a permit application disclosure statement, notification on the facility's deed, restrictive covenants, and easements. For additional information regarding these state requirements, see the state section TSDF PERMITS.
