 Introduced   by   COMMITTEE  ON  RULES  --  (at  request  of  M.  of  A.
   Pheffer Amato) -- read once and referred to the Committee on  Environ-
   mental Conservation
 
 AN  ACT  to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to the
   filling of borrow pits in Jamaica Bay; and to amend chapter 288 of the
   laws of 2014 amending the environmental conservation law  relating  to
   the  filling  of borrow pits in Jamaica Bay, in relation to making the
   provisions of such chapter permanent
 
   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section  1.  Legislative intent. Due to the increase in vessel size in
 recent years, New York State waterways such as channels, berthing  areas
 and  harbors are being excavated in a process known as dredging to main-
 tain sufficient depth for safe and efficient vessel operation.
   Dredged material  is  naturally  accumulated  sediment,  much  of  the
 dredged  material  does  contain  some  contaminants  at varying concen-
 trations.
   Jamaica Bay was dredged to supply soil for a  number  of  construction
 projects. This process created borrow pits in the bay. These borrow pits
 have  been  identified as an attractive alternative for the disposing of
 dredge material.
   § 2. Subdivisions 1 and 3-a of section 15-0505  of  the  environmental
 conservation law, subdivision 1 as amended by chapter 233 of the laws of
 1979  and  subdivision  3-a as added by chapter 288 of the laws of 2014,
 are amended to read as follows:
   1. No person, local public corporation or interstate  authority  shall
 excavate  or  place  fill  below the mean high water level in any of the
 navigable waters of the state, or in marshes, estuaries,  tidal  marshes
 and  wetlands that are adjacent to and contiguous at any point to any of
 the navigable waters of the state and that are inundated  at  mean  high
 water  level  or tide, without a permit issued pursuant to subdivision 3
 of this section. For the purposes of this section, fill  shall  include,
 but  shall  not  be  limited to, earth, clay, silt, sand, gravel, stone,
 rock, shale, concrete (whole  or  fragmentary),  ashes,  cinders,  slag,
