• Rules. The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) adopts by reference the federal requirements for managing polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) with additional state requirements concerning detection of PCBs at solid waste landfills, land disposal restrictions (LDRs) for liquid hazardous waste containing PCBs, land application of sludge containing PCBs, manifests, and annual reports. See the national section PCB MANAGEMENT for federal PCB requirements under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).
• Administration and enforcement. The EPA administers and enforces the federal rules for PCB disposal and storage in Illinois. The IEPA administers and enforces the Illinois regulations for management of PCB-containing wastes that are special wastes or solid wastes.
