Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Oregon has established its own hazardous substance remedial action rules for the cleanup of hazardous waste disposal sites in the state. In many ways, the state program is modeled after the federal Superfund. For example, Oregon has a hazardous sites list, like the federal National Priority List, and the state requires cleanup to be conducted in project phases that are similar to the federal rules. See the national section SUPERFUND for more information on the federal program.

Oregon's hazardous substance remedial action rules are in addition to the federal Superfund rules and procedures.

Administration and enforcement. DEQ's Land Quality Division administers and enforces the state's hazardous substance remedial action rules in Oregon. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administers and enforces the federal Superfund rules.
