Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Oregon incorporates by reference the federal rules for hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) and adds some more stringent state requirements. The state's stricter rules cover: facility permits and fees; annual reports; contingency plan; closure and post-closure; corrective action; disposal restrictions; facility design, construction, and operation standards; financial assurance; Oregon listed wastes; pollution prevention; and unsaturated zone monitoring program.
• Administration and enforcement. The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality's (DEQ) Land Quality Division administers and enforces the hazardous waste TSDF management requirements in Oregon.
