A10443 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A10443A
 
SPONSOR: Buchwald
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law, in relation to designating Katonah lake, Kitchawan lake, Oscaleta lake, Rippowam lake, Truesdale lake and Waccabuc lake as inland waterways for the purposes of waterfront revitalization   PURPOSE: Designates Katonah, Kitchawan, Oscaleta, Rippowam, Truesdale and Wacca- buc as inland waterways for the purposes of waterfront revitalization   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one of the bill amends paragraph (a) of subdivision 4 of section 911 of the Executive Law to add the following lakes to the list of inland waterways: Katonah, Kitchawan, Oscaleta, Rippowam, Truesdale and Waccabuc lakes. Section two of the bill provides the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: Lakes Waccabuc, Oscaleta, and Rippowam, colloquially known as the tri- lakes, along with Lakes Kitchawan, Katonah and Truesdale, are home to bucolic lakefront communities in the watershed which supplies New York City's drinking water. Yet each of these lakes faces unique challenges and have at times been variously classified as impaired on the State's waterbody inventory. By adding these lakes to the list of inland water- ways, municipalities can align their use resources, along with the State's Coastal and Inland Waterway Policies, to pursue our shared goals of improved water quality, preservation of open space and wildlife habi- tat, promotion of tourism and economic development opportunities, as well as combating the aforementioned threats to the watershed.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
