Stream Corridor Protections

Article 43- 0112 (5) of the Environmental Conservation Law "The Commission shall, after consultation with the department, the department of health, the Adirondack Park Agency and each municipality located in whole or in part within the Park, further promulgate regulations relative to stream corridor management which shall include standards for the location of roads, stream channelization, the frequency of stream crossings, and timber harvesting and vegetative cutting restrictions within designated stream corridors. The regulations adopted pursuant to this section may be stricter than regulations promulgated by the department."

The Commission is currently undergoing a review of it's existing stormwater regulations in an effort to bring them up to date with current best-management practices, including provisions for stream corridor protections. The Commission has been meeting with many different stakeholders at round table discussions to gather as much public and professional opinion and perspective.
