Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Kentucky adopts by reference the federal land disposal restrictions (LDRs) which include the Phase IV federal LDRs and best demonstrated available technology (BDAT).

Administration and enforcement. Kentucky's LDRs are administered and enforced by the Department for Environmental Protection's (DEP) Division of Waste Management. However, when new regulations are issued under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act's (RCRA) Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA), the EPA will administer the new regulations until the state adopts equivalent or more stringent rules.
