This dataset contains the information regarding water withdrawals collected by New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC).

Complexity

The reporting requirements have expanded since collection began in 1990. Data is currently collected in accordance with the requirements of ECL 15-1501. ECL 15-1501 requires a DEC permit and annual usage reporting for all facilities using water for any purpose and having the capacity to withdraw 100,000 gallons or more per day of surface or groundwater. These facilities may or may not be permitted with other agencies that regulate water supplies in New York State. This dataset begins with 2009 data and includes facility name, town, county and withdrawal information.

The state’s waters are used for domestic, municipal, agricultural, commercial, industrial, power, environmental and recreational purposes. Previously, only public water supply withdrawals required permits. The new law, effective in August 2011, extends this requirement to all water withdrawal systems with the capability to withdraw 100,000 gallons per day or more (“threshold volume”). The capacity is determined by totaling all groundwater and/or surface water sources independent of how they are plumbed or their designation, such as for redundancy, etc.
