Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. New Jersey has incorporated by reference the federal rules for the management of surface impoundments. In addition, owners and operators of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) that use hazardous waste surface impoundments must comply with state permit application requirements and pay several state permit and facility fees. The state's more stringent permit standards and fees are reviewed in the state section TSDF PERMITS.

Administration and enforcement. DEP's Solid and Hazardous Waste Management Program administers and enforces the surface impoundment requirements in New Jersey, including the federal organic air emissions standards.
