Job Impact Statement for 6 NYCRR 702


The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is proposing revisions to 6 NYCRR Part 702, "Derivation and Use Standards and Guidance Values." The revisions will correct a long-standing technical error in Section 702.17, "Variances to effluent limitations based on standards and guidance values."

In 2003, DEC repealed Part 754, "Provisions of SPDES Permits." However, due to an oversight, two references to Part 754 in Section 702.17 were left in place. Rulemaking is necessary to remove the references to Part 754 and replace them with the appropriate citation.

The proposed revisions to section 702.17 will correct this problem. The changes will not affect the substance of the regulatory requirements. DEC has therefore determined that this rulemaking will not have an impact on jobs and employment opportunities. Accordingly, a job impact statement is not required for this rulemaking.
