Monday August 21, 2017
Contact  Michelle Tompkins, NYS DEC - Division of Water
625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-3500, Phone: (518) 402-8221, E-mail: Michelle.Tompkins@dec.ny.gov

NYS DEC has filed a Notice of Proposed Rule Making to repeal 6 NYCRR Part 500 - Floodplain Management Regulations Development Permits. The statutory authority for Part 500, which came from Environmental Conservation Law Article 36, was repealed by the Legislature in 1992. Part 500 has not been in effect since 1992 and should not appear in NYS DEC's regulations. NYS DEC is proposing to remove it from its regulations to avoid confusing the public.

This rule would also amend citations to 6 NYCRR Parts 750-758 - State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System. Parts 750-758 were repealed in 2003 and consolidated into a new Part 750.

Written comments on the proposed rulemaking will be accepted until August 21, 2017. Please submit comments to Michelle Tompkins at the address above.
