What Can I Do With The Environmental Navigator?

The Environmental Navigator displays a series of interactive maps showing features of New York State's environment in their geographic context. More interactive maps will be added to the Navigator in the future. Using the navigator tools, you can click on the map to view features of interest in your area.

Important Tips for Navigator Users:

Environmental Facilities

Go directly to the Environmental Facilities Map

The Environmental Facilities interactive map shows the locations of the following types of DEC Regulated Facilities: superfund sites, significant SPDES discharge facilities, air emission sources, active solid waste management facilities, facilities discharging certain types of wastes, and major electric generation facilities, both existing and proposed. The existence of a site does not necessarily mean a health threat to those living in its vicinity, nor does it necessarily represent any environmental threat whatsoever. You can get additional information about regulated facilities from the contacts listed on About the Data.

Mineral Resources

Go directly to the Mineral Resources Map

The Mineral Resources interactive map provides graphical information on more than 32,000 wells and 2,500 mines across the State of New York regulated by the DEC.

The regulated activities mapped through Mineral Resources are existing locations subject to DEC regulatory control. The existence of a site does not necessarily mean a health threat to those living in it's vicinity, nor does it necessarily represent any environmental threat whatsoever. You can get additional information about regulated wells and mines from the contacts listed on About the Data.
