• Rules. Utah follows the federal rules for polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) handling, storage, and disposal. In addition, Utah collects a fee for PCBs that are treated or disposed of in the state.
• Administration and enforcement. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Region 8 office administers and enforces the state's regulations for PCB disposal and storage. The Utah Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is responsible for administering and enforcing the rules that prohibit the manufacture or purchase of PCBs or PCB products within Utah. The DEQ also administers and enforces the PCB disposal fee requirements in the state.
