Description of Petition: Petition 2003-06 -- The proposed amendment is to the Nevada Hazardous Waste Regulations. The State of Nevada is authorized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) to enforce federal hazardous waste regulations. Between July 1, 2002, and July 1, 2003, the EPA approved revisions to existing federal hazardous waste regulations and published them in the Federal Register. The State of Nevada is required to modify its state regulations accordingly. The Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) is proposing to incorporate these federal revisions into state regulations by adopting the applicable sections of the Federal Register as it existed on July 1, 2003. This regulatory petition affects NAC 444 and 445. Updating these regulations will allow NDEP to continue to implement the RCRA program in lieu of the federal government.
