Abstract

This updated chapter of the Lexis Treatise, Waters & Water Rights provides an overview of the statutes and cases governing water law in New York State. The state's water law is primarily codified in Article 15 of New York Environmental Conservation Law, with residual issues defined by common law. New York is considered a reasonable use riparian jurisdiction, although its comprehensive legal framework could also fit under the rubric of "regulated riparianism." This chapter surveys water law in the state - from interstate compact down to municipal flood control ordinance and attempts to contextualize them within the overall state legal framework.

Keywords: water, water law, New York water law, regulated riparianism, environment, environmental law, water allocation, water quality, water pollution
