Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Utah follows the federal requirements for hazardous waste surface impoundments, including the federal organic air emissions rules for surface impoundments. In addition, owners and operators of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) that use surface impoundments must comply with additional permit application requirements, including an application fee. The state's more stringent permit standards are reviewed in the state section TSDF PERMITS.
• Administration and enforcement. The Utah Department of Environmental Quality's (DEQ) Division of Waste Management and Radiation Control.
