Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Indiana incorporates by reference the federal permit rules for hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs), including the remedial action plan (RAP) rules and the provisions for standardized permits. The state adds several stricter state standards concerning:
—Application process and permit conditions
—Facility construction and operation approval
—Permit and facility fees
• Administration and enforcement. IDEM's Office of Land Quality administers and enforces the TSDF permit application and modification rules in Indiana.
