Summary

This Act establishes statewide regulations for the management, protection, enhancement and control of land use and development in river areas on all designated wild, scenic and recreational rivers in New York State, except for private land in river areas within the Adirondack Park. The regulations specify that all new land use or development in river areas requires a permit, with some exceptions. The regulations define three classes of rivers (wild, scenic, and recreational) and set management rules specific to each. Some exemptions apply. The regulations specify that no new dams or waterway modifications can be constructed on any wild, scenic, or recreational rivers, and no new construction or operation of hydropower facilities is permitted on wild rivers. New hydropower facilities at existing dams on scenic and recreational rivers are allowed, pending certain requirements.
