Comparison: State vs. Federal
· Rules. Ohio follows the federal land treatment facility rules. Land treatment facilities in Ohio must also comply with additional state reporting, permit, and fee requirements.
· Administration and enforcement. OEPA's Division of Hazardous Waste Management administers and enforces the land treatment facility requirements in Ohio.
MONTHLY REPORT AND FEE
An owner or operator of a hazardous waste land treatment facility must submit a monthly activity report to OEPA. The report must list the total tonnage of waste treated and be submitted no later than the fortieth day after the end of the month that the report covers. In addition, a monthly treatment fee must be submitted to OEPA with the monthly report if the facility is used to treat hazardous waste generated off-site. See the state section HAZARDOUS WASTE TREATMENT to review the report and fee requirements.
TREATMENT FACILITY PERMITS
Owners and operators of land treatment facilities must comply with additional permit application requirements and pay several state permit and facility fees. The state's more stringent permit standards, permit application fee, and annual permit fees are discussed in the state section TSDF PERMITS.
