You will soon have to meet new regulatory requirements for New York State that, at a minimum, include the following:
Facilities that are located within groundwater recharge zones (areas which supply water to replenish the aquifer) will be looked at more closely and may be held to stricter rules to prevent impacts to groundwater and surface water quality and the environment. This could include requiring the use of an impermeable liner. However, if favorable groundwater quality testing results and other characteristics that demonstrate that the facility does not pose a risk to a recharge area are observed, an exemption from this rule may apply.
