Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Arizona incorporates by reference the federal permit rules, with the exception of the provisions for standardized permits adopted under the federal rules in 2005. The state adds requirements that make Arizona's permit requirements more stringent than the federal rules. The additional state requirements are in connection with additional requirements for remedial action plan (RAP) permit applications, Part B permit application information, and fees.

Administration and enforcement. ADEQ's Waste Programs Division administers and enforces the TSDF permit requirements in Arizona.
