Part 801: Olean Creek Drainage Basin

(Statutory authority: Environmental Conservation Law, § 17-0301)

Contents:

Sec.

§801.1 Adopting order

Pursuant to the authority contained in article 6 of the Public Health Law, the Water Pollution Control Board, having made proper studies and having held a public hearing on due notice with reference thereto, hereby adopts and assigns the following classifications and standards of quality and purity to the various waters as specifically designated and described below and subject to the definitions and conditions as stated.

§801.2 Definitions and conditions

The several terms, words or phrases hereinafter mentioned shall be construed as follows:

(a) Class as appearing in table I, as the letters A, B or C opposite each specifically designated waters, means class A, B or C, as the case may be, as set forth in Part 701, supra.

(b) Standards as appearing in table I, as the letters A, B or C opposite each specifically designated waters, shall mean the standards of quality and purity established for class A, B or C, as the case may be, as set forth in Part 701, supra. The symbol (T) after any class designation shall mean that the designated waters are trout waters and that the dissolved oxygen specification for trout waters shall apply thereto. The symbol (TS) after any class designation shall mean that the designated waters are suitable for trout spawning and that the dissolved oxygen specification for trout spawning waters shall apply thereto.

(c) Waters index number as appearing in table I shall mean that number which has been applied to any specifically designated waters appearing on the maps set forth in section 801.6, infra.

(d) Name as appearing in table I shall mean the name, if any, by which the specifically designated waters are generally known and which name, if any, appears on the reference map. In cases of specifically designated waters which have no name, the named tributary to which the unnamed waters are tributary is indicated so far as possible. In the tables in the column headed "Name", the unnamed water to which an unnamed tributary is directly tributary is referenced so far as possible to a specific item number. In the tables, an item number is assigned consecutively to each specifically designated waters.

(e) Description as appearing in table I shall mean a brief indication as to location of the specifically designated waters so that by reference to reference maps such waters may be located without reference to their waters index numbers. Entries under the column headed "Description" also include designations of sections of a stream to which a particular assignment of a class and standards shall apply.

(f) The map appearing in section 801.6, infra, designates Olean, New York (1943), Belmont, New York (1943), Franklinville, New York (1947) and Ellicottville, New York (1947), editions of the quadrangles published by the U.S. Geological Survey which were combined and partially reproduced with superimposed tracing in black of streams and other waters and waters index numbers.

(g) Tributary or tributaries. Tributary shall mean any stream, lake, pond or other body of surface water which flows into any other stream, lake, pond or other body of surface water. In the table under the column headed "Waters Index Number" where no tributaries are mentioned, the specifically designated waters shall include only the stream, pond or other body of water designated by such waters index number; where tributaries are mentioned after the waters index number, the specifically designated waters shall include the stream, pond or other body of water designated by such waters index number and all tributaries and subtributaries thereof which are shown on the reference map, unless exceptions are expressly stated.

(h) All streams or other bodies of water which appear as lines, to indicate natural waters, on the reference maps herein, and which are not specifically designated in table I, shall be assigned the same classes and standards of quality and purity as the specifically designated waters to which they are directly tributary.

(i) All streams or other bodies of water which are not shown on the reference maps herein shall be assigned to class D, as set forth in Part 701, supra, except that any continuous flowing natural stream which is not shown on the reference maps shall have the same classification and assigned standards as the waters to which it is directly tributary.

(j) The Olean Creek drainage basin shall be deemed to include the following areas: all land and water areas the natural surface water drainage from which is directly or indirectly tributary to the mouth of Olean Creek at its junction with the Allegheny River.

(k) The term trout as used in this Part means any fish in the following genera: Coregonus, Oncorhyncus, Prosopium, Salmo, Salvelinus and Thymallus.

§801.3 Assigned classifications and standards of quality and purity

The classifications and standards of quality and purity which are hereby assigned to all fresh surface waters within the Olean Creek drainage basin are as set forth in Table I.
