A07013 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A7013
 
SPONSOR: Sweeney
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to the uniform treatment of waste   PURPOSE: To require hazardous wastes produced from oil and natural gas activities to be subject to the requirements for treatment of hazardous wastes.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one of the bill amends section 27-0903 of the Environmental Conservation Law to add a new section that would classify all waste resulting from oil or natural gas production activ- ities as hazardous waste, if such waste meets the definition of hazard- ous wastes set forth in the Environmental Conservation Law. This section also directs the Department of Environmental Conservation to make all necessary changes to bring its rules and regulations into compliance. Section two contains the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: Currently, the regulations promulgated by the Depart- ment of Environmental Conservation that govern the waste produced by the oil and natural gas industries exempt "drilling fluids, produced waters, and other wastes associated with the exploration, development or production of crude oil, natural gas or geothermal energy" from being regulated as hazardous waste. This exemption is in place despite the fact that the waste resulting from the exploration, development, extraction and production of crude oil and natural gas may be hazardous in many instances. This legislation would supersede that regulation and ensure that when waste from these operations meets the definition of hazardous waste, that it be treated in a manner consistent with other hazardous wastes. Failure to properly classify waste that meets this threshold could pres- ent a real danger to public health and the environment. If not treated properly, hazardous waste can, among other concerns, lead to contam- inated air, drinking water, soil, and food. There is no compelling reason why waste produced from oil and natural gas activities that meets the definition of hazardous waste, should not be subject to the same laws regarding generation, transportation, treatment, storage and disposal as other hazardous wastes.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is new legislation.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
