Notice of Emergency Adoption & Proposed Rule Making

Pursuant to the provisions of the State Administrative Procedures Act notice is given of the following action: Amendment of Title 6 of NYCRR Part 41.3. Evaluations of sanitary surveys and bacteriological water quality data show that portions of shellfish lands in the Town of Southold no longer meet the criteria for certified shellfish lands as set out in Title 6 of NYCRR Part 47. The evaluations also determine that portions of particular seasonally certified and uncertified shellfish lands in the Town of Southold now meet the criteria for certified year-round and seasonally certified. Environmental Conservation Law Section 13-0307, requires that the Department examine shellfish lands and certify those that are in such sanitary condition that shellfish may be used as food and designate all other lands as uncertified. Closures of areas that do not meet criteria for certified shellfish lands protect public health of shellfish consumers. Reopenings of areas that meet the criteria of Title 6 NYCRR Part 47 will provide an economic benefit to the shellfish industry.
