TRRP Compatibility with RCRA
Overview of This Publication
Objectives: This document explains the interface of the Texas Risk Reduction Program (TRRP) rule
with the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) as it relates to closure of a
hazardous waste management unit with and without a release, RCRA permit
modifications, corrective action (including regulated units, points of compliance, solid
waste management units, corrective action process, and Facility Operations Area),
"Contained in" policy, and soil reuse.
Audience: Regulated community and environmental professionals knowledgeable in RCRA
References: The Texas Risk Reduction Program (TRRP) rule, together with conforming changes to
related rules, is contained in 30 TAC Chapter 350. The TRRP rule was initially
published in the September 17, 1999 Texas Register (24 TexReg 7413-7944) and was
amended in 2007 (effective March 19, 2007; 32 TexReg 1526-1579).

TRRP (30 TAC 350) specifies the assessment, monitoring, cleanup,
reporting, and any post-response action care and financial assurance
requirements that certain response actions and waste management unit
closures must meet. TRRP became effective on September 23, 1999. Texas
is authorized by the EPA to carry out the federal RCRA program in place
of EPA for closures, corrective actions and other core RCRA functions.
Prior to TRRP, RCRA closures and corrective actions were conducted
under the Risk Reduction Rule (RRR) (30 TAC Chapter 335, Subchapters
A and S). Where comparable federal regulations exist, the TRRP rule has
been designed to mesh with those regulations so that the person will be
able to comply with both state and federal requirements without conflict.
As indicated in 350.2(a), the person must also meet any more stringent
or additional requirements found in the RCRA program. This document
clarifies the interplay between these programs and explains how RCRA
facilities can comply with TRRP and RCRA for closures and corrective
