Dutchess, Putnam, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester Counties - The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYC DEP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Amendments to the Rules for the Recreational Use of Water Supply Lands and Waters, allowing Recreational Boating will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the NYC DEP to amend Title 15, Chapter 16 of the Rules of the City of New York (RCNY), the existing rules governing the recreational use of over 112, 000 acres of New York City water supply lands and waters (Existing Rules).

The Proposed Rules would govern permissible recreational uses of all water supply lands and waters owned by the City of New York. The regulated community would be all persons accessing City-owned water supply lands, lakes, and reservoirs located in Delaware, Sullivan, Greene, Schoharie, Ulster, Orange, Putnam, Dutchess, and Westchester counties, for purposes of recreation. The Proposed Rules continue to ensure that appropriate protections are in place to protect water quality and ensure security.

The purpose of these proposed rules is to expand year-round boating to the Kensico and New Croton Reservoirs, change the definition of "Group" to fill an inadvertent gap between the number of people an Access Permit holder may sponsor as guests and the number of people necessary to require a Group Access Permit, prohibit certain fishing equipment due to the threat of invasive species, indicate the maximum amount that can be charged to retrieve a boat that has been removed from the water, stored by NYC DEP and eventually becomes the property of not claimed before 90 days, limit boaters' abilities to change Boat Storage Areas to facilitate NYC DEP's management of Boat Storage Areas, enable all recreational boaters to use steam cleaning facilities other than those belonging to NYC DEP, and include an Access Permit penalty schedule.

The proposed rules are derived from historical recreational uses of the lands that are recognized in the New York City Watershed Memorandum of Agreement dated January 21, 1997. The City does not assume any liability for the recreational use by the public of its lands and waters beyond that provided in General Obligation Law §9-103.

The project is located in the New York City drinking watershed in the counties of Delaware, Greene, Schoharie, Sullivan, Ulster, Dutchess, Putnam and Westchester, New York.
