Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Kansas incorporates the federal land disposal restrictions (LDRs) by reference, including the Phase IV federal LDRs and best demonstrated available technology (BDAT). In addition, Kansas has added provisions in connection with Kansas small quantity generators (KSQGs) and D009 contained in lab packs.

Kansas, however, did not adopt the following federal LDRs because EPA has not delegated authority to states to implement these rules:

—Case-by-case extensions (40 CFR 268.5)

—No-migration variances (40 CFR 268.6)

—Equivalent method variances (40 CFR 268.42(b))

—Variances from treatment standards (40 CFR 268.44)

See LDR Exceptions in the national section LAND DISPOSAL RESTRICTIONS/LAND BAN for more information about these extensions and variances.

Administration and enforcement. Kansas's hazardous waste management program is authorized by EPA and administered by KDHE's Bureau of Waste Management. However, when new LDRs are issued under the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA) to RCRA, the EPA will administer these new regulations until the time that equivalent or more stringent rules are adopted in Kansas.
