Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule

DEP is proposing a rule to amend the City’s Air Code Penalty Schedule in Chapter 43 of Title 15 of the Rules of the City of New York and to establish in the Air Code Penalty Schedule new penalties for two separate violations of Chapter 1 of Title 24 of the New York City Administrative Code.

Local Law 61 of 2018, which took effect on January 1, 2019, added Section 24-154 to the Administrative Code. Administrative Code section 24-154 requires mold assessment licensees and mold remediation licensees to file notifications of mold remediation projects with an agency designated by the Mayor. Subdivision (d) of Section 24-154 authorizes that designated agency to establish penalties for failing to file such notifications. On March 25, 2019, the Office of the Mayor designated DEP as such agency.

DEP proposes to establish the following penalties: for a first violation, a penalty of $800; for a second violation, a penalty of $1600; and for a third violation and for all subsequent violations, penalties of $2400.

DEP is also amending the Air Code Penalty Schedule to establish penalties for building owners or other responsible parties who fail to allow inspectors to collect samples of an air contaminant or substances used in a process that affects or may affect the emission of an air contaminant. Section 24-108 of the Administrative Code requires a building owner or responsible party to allow the DEP to take such samples. Section 24-178 of the Administrative Code allows DEP to impose penalties for failures to comply with section 24-108.

DEP proposes to establish the following penalties: for a first violation, a penalty of $200; for a second violation, a penalty of $400; and for a third violation and all subsequent violations, penalties of $600.

This rule amendment exclusively establishes the amount of fees for such violations. Consequently, pursuant to item (iii) of paragraph (4) of subdivision (d) of section 1043 of the New York City Charter, this rule amendment is exempt from the procedure set forth in subdivision (d) therein.

Subject: 

Air Code Penalty amendments for failures to notify DEP of mold remediation projects and failures to allow inspectors to collect samples of an air contaminant or substances used in a process that affects or may affect the emission of an air contaminant.

Notice of Promulgation of Rule

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN PURSUANT TO THE AUTHORITY VESTED in the Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings (OATH) pursuant to New York City Charter section 1049(4)(g) that OATH amends the table in subsection (a) of section 7-02 of chapter 7 of title 48 of the Rules of the City of New York, to reflect the new monetary penalties set forth in section 16-118(9) of the Administrative Code of the City of New York for second and third violations of littering, sweep-out, throw-out, and spitting, as amended by Local Law 131 of 2018, and to correct an error in a rule citation. 

The proposed rule was published in The City Record on November 1, 2018. OATH did not hold a public hearing on the proposed rule pursuant to New York City Charter section 1043(e)(iii) on the grounds that a public hearing would serve no public purpose. OATH has no discretion over the new monetary penalties set forth in Administrative Code section 16-118(9), which are replicated in this rule. OATH did not receive any written comments.

Statement of Basis and Purpose of Final Rule

The Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings (OATH) amends the table in subsection (a) of section 7-02 of chapter 7 of title 48 of the Rules of the City of New York (RCNY) to reflect the new monetary penalties set forth in section 16-118(9) of the Administrative Code of the City of New York (Administrative Code) for second and third violations of Administrative Code section 16-118(1) (littering, sweep-out, throw-out, and spitting), as amended by Local Law 131 of 2018.

Section 7-02(a) includes a table of violations eligible for community service, the monetary civil penalty, and the corresponding community service hour requirement. Effective November 26, 2018, Local Law 131 of 2018 amends section 16-118(9) to remove the penalty ranges for second and third violations of section 16-118(1) and sets a fixed penalty of $300 for a second violation, and $400 for a third violation of that provision. This amendment reflects the increase in these penalties.   

The amendments also correct an error in the citation to 56 RCNY section 1-04(i), related to unleashed/uncontrolled animals in the park. 

Pursuant to city charter section 1043(d)(4)(ii), this rule is exempt from the certification requirements of section 1043(d).

New material is underlined.

                                        Statement of Basis and Purpose

 

Background

 

Administrative Code § 17-194 provides that any owner of a building that has a water tank as part of its drinking water supply system must have it inspected at least once annually and requires the inspection to comply with applicable provisions of the New York City Health Code (“Health Code”). Inspection results must be recorded in a manner prescribed by the Commissioner of the Department.

Article 141 of the Health Code regulates certain aspects of the purity and sanitary condition of the City’s potable water supply, including roof top water storage tanks. Water for thousands of New York City buildings is kept in these types of tanks. Health Code §141.07 (“Building Drinking Water Storage Tanks”) requires that these tanks be inspected annually and that the person in control of a building using  water storage tanks keep copies of the inspection records and make them available to the Department upon request.

Owners of buildings with water tanks are required to report annually to the Department the fact that the tanks have been inspected. Requiring annual reporting promotes building owner compliance with the inspection mandate and facilitates the Department’s ability to monitor compliance.  Data from these reports is publically available from the Department. 

Administrative Code provisions.  Administrative Code § 17-194, enacted as Local Law 11 for the year 2009, provides for the annual inspections of water tanks, with results to be recorded in accordance with Department rules, maintained for five years from the date of inspection, and made available to the Department within five business days of receiving a request. Administrative Code § 17-194(e) allows for penalties of $250 to $1,000 per violation for violations of Administrative Code § 17-194 (b), and for a maximum of $250 per violation for violations of Administrative Code § 17-194 (c).  This rule sets the penalties for these violations within those ranges.

§ 17-194(b) requires that tanks be inspected annually for compliance with applicable laws; results of inspections be recorded in a manner prescribed by the Commissioner; results of inspections be maintained for five years; and results of inspections be made available to the Department within five business days of being requested.

§ 17-194 (c) requires a building owner to post a notice in a building informing tenants how to obtain the results of inspections.

Health Code provisions.   Health Code Article 141 (“Drinking Water”) supports maintenance of the purity and sanitary condition of the City’s potable water supply. Health Code §141.07 regulates building drinking water storage tanks as follows:

§141.07 (b) requires that owners and other persons in control of buildings serviced by water storage tanks annually inspect the physical condition of tanks and sample tank water for bacteriological quality.   

§141.07(c)  requires written reports of these inspections to be maintained for at least five years, and provided to the Department within five business days of a request by the Department. As of January 1, 2015, documentation of the inspections must be submitted to the Department, indicating whether the results of the inspection were satisfactory.

§141.07(d) requires a building owner to post a notice in a building informing tenants how to obtain the results of inspections.

§141.07(e) requires owners to immediately correct any unsanitary conditions identified in the water tank inspections; to clean the tank when indicated in accordance with Health Code §141.09; and to report any unsatisfactory findings in bacteriological sampling to the Department within 24 hours of receipt of such findings.

§141.07(f) provides that failure to submit reports to the Department when requested, or failure to submit the required annual documentation of an inspection, is prima facie evidence that no inspection was done at that time, and that separate violations may be issued for each year for which a required inspection report was not submitted.  

§141.09 (“Building Water Tank Cleaning, Painting and Coating”) requires that when water storage tanks are cleaned, painted  or coated, that work be done in accordance with industry standards, incorporating appropriate disinfection processes, by a duly qualified person or entity.  

Department rules.  In April 2015, the Department adopted a new Chapter 31 (“Drinking Water Tank Inspections”) of Title 24 RCNY.   Section 31-02(a) of the chapter requires building owners or their agents to report the results of the annual inspections of their drinking water storage tanks to the Department no later than January 15th of the following year.   

 

Amendments to Chapter 31

 

This rule amends Chapter 31 to establish a penalty schedule for sustained violations of the Chapter and of the Health Code and the Administrative Code that have been adjudicated at the Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings (OATH).

Notices of violations will be written, and penalties will be requested for each violation related to each drinking water tank in a building, for each year to which the violation applies.  A new section 31-03 of Chapter 31 provides that the penalties set forth in the new Appendix 31-A of this Chapter must be imposed for sustained violations. Violations related to record keeping will be $250, to be doubled to $500 if the owner or other person served with a notice of violation or a summons fails to appear at a hearing and is found in default. Penalties for failure to conduct inspections and to clean tanks, report conditions or otherwise correct violations are established at $500, and doubled if the owner or other person served with a notice of violation or a summons fails to appear at a hearing and is found in default to $1,000. 

Statutory Authority

These amendments to Chapter 31 of Title 24 of the Rules of the City of New York are authorized under §§ 556 and 1043 of the Charter; § 17-194 of the Administrative Code; and §141.07 of the Health Code.  Pursuant to § 556 of the Charter, the Department has jurisdiction to regulate all matters affecting health in the City, and specifically to supervise and regulate the purity and public health aspects of the water supplied in the City. Section 1043 of the Charter gives the Department rulemaking powers. Administrative Code § 17-194(b) and Health Code §141.07(b) authorize the Commissioner of the Department to adopt rules for annual water tank inspection recording and reporting.

Administrative Code § 17-194 provides that any owner of a building that has a water tank as part of its drinking water supply system must have it inspected at least once annually and requires the inspection to comply with applicable provisions of the New York City Health Code (“Health Code”). Inspection results must be recorded in a manner prescribed by the Commissioner of the Department.

Article 141 of the Health Code regulates certain aspects of the purity and sanitary condition of the City’s potable water supply, including roof top water storage tanks. Water for thousands of New York City buildings is kept in these types of tanks. Health Code §141.07 (“Building Drinking Water Storage Tanks”) requires that these tanks be inspected annually and that the person in control of a building using  water storage tanks keep copies of the inspection records and make them available to the Department upon request.

Owners of buildings with water tanks are required to report annually to the Department the fact that the tanks have been inspected. Requiring annual reporting promotes building owner compliance with the inspection mandate and facilitates the Department’s ability to monitor compliance.  Data from these reports will be made publically available. 

Administrative Code provisions.  Administrative Code § 17-194, enacted as Local Law 11 for the year 2009, provides for the annual inspections of water tanks, with results to be recorded in accordance with Department rules, maintained for five years from the date of inspection, and made available to the Department within five business days of receiving a request. Administrative Code § 17-194(e) allows for penalties of $250 to $1,000 per violation for violations of Administrative Code § 17-194 (b), and for a maximum of $250 per violation for violations of Administrative Code § 17-194 (c).  This proposed rule would set the penalties for these violations within those ranges.

§ 17-194(b) requires that tanks be inspected annually for compliance with applicable laws; results of inspections be recorded in a manner prescribed by the Commissioner; results of inspections be maintained for five years; and results of inspections be made available to the Department within five business days of being requested.

§ 17-194 (c) requires  a building owner to post a notice in a building informing tenants how to obtain the results of inspections.

Health Code provisions.   Health Code Article 141 (“Drinking Water”) supports maintenance of the purity and sanitary condition of the City’s potable water supply. Health Code §141.07 regulates building drinking water storage tanks as follows:

§141.07 (b) requires that owners and other persons in control of buildings serviced by water storage tanks annually inspect the physical condition of tanks and sample tank water for bacteriological quality.

As of January 1, 2015, documentation of the inspections must be submitted to the Department, indicating whether the results of the inspection were satisfactory.

§141.07(d) requires a building owner to post a notice in a building informing tenants how to obtain the results of inspections.

§141.07(e) requires owners to immediately correct any unsanitary conditions identified in the water tank inspections; to clean the tank when indicated in accordance with Health Code §141.09; and to report any unsatisfactory findings in bacteriological sampling to the Department within 24 hours of receipt of such findings.

§141.07(f) provides that failure to submit reports to the Department when requested, or failure to submit the required annual documentation of an inspection, is prima facie evidence that no inspection was done at that time, and that separate violations may be issued for each year for which a required inspection report was not submitted.  

§141.09 (“Building Water Tank Cleaning, Painting and Coating”) requires that when water storage tanks are cleaned, painted  or coated, that work be done in accordance with industry standards, incorporating appropriate disinfection processes, by a duly qualified person or entity.  

Department rules.  In April 2015, the Department adopted a new Chapter 31 (“Drinking Water Tank Inspections”) of Title 24 RCNY.   Section 31-02(a) of this new chapter requires building owners or their agents to report the results of the annual inspections of their drinking water storage tanks to the Department no later than January 15th of the following year.   

Proposed Changes

The proposed rule amends Chapter 31 to establish a penalty schedule for sustained violations adjudicated at the Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings of the City of New York (OATH).

Notices of violations will be written, and penalties will be requested for each violation related to each drinking water tank in a building, for each year to which the violation applies.  A new section 31-03 provides that penalties set forth in Appendix 31-A must be imposed for sustained violations. Violations related to record keeping will be $250, to be doubled to $500 if the owner or other person served with a notice of violation or a summons fails to appear at a hearing and is found in default. Penalties for failure to conduct inspections and to clean tanks, report conditions or otherwise correct violations are established at $500, and doubled if the owner or other person served with a notice of violation or a summons fails to appear at a hearing and is found in default to $1,000.

Statutory Authority

These amendments to Chapter 31 of Title 24 of the Rules of the City of New York are authorized under §§ 556 and 1043 of the Charter; § 17-194 of the Administrative Code; and §141.07 of the Health Code.  Pursuant to § 556 of the Charter, the Department has jurisdiction to regulate all matters affecting health in the City, and specifically to supervise and regulate the purity and public health aspects of the water supplied in the City. Section 1043 of the Charter gives the Department rulemaking powers. Administrative Code § 17-194(b) and Health Code §141.07(b) authorize the Commissioner of the Department to adopt rules for annual water tank inspection recording and reporting.
