Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Virginia has adopted by reference the federal requirements for management of used oil. The only additional state requirement is that Virginia's rule prohibiting the use of used oil as a dust suppressant has deleted the federal provision that allows the state to petition federal EPA to allow such use (9 VAC 20-60-279(B)(1)).

Administration and enforcement. DEQ's Waste Division administers and enforces the used oil management rules in Virginia.
