Hudson River-Black River Regulating District

Compliance with Freedom of Information Law Requirements

The Hudson River-Black River Regulating District regulates the flow of the Hudson River and the Black River to reduce flooding caused by excess run-off and to augment river flow at times of drought. Article 6 of the New York State Public Officers Law provides for public access to government records. The statute, generally referred to as the Freedom of Information Law (FOIL), applies to any State agency, public authority and local government entity, with the exception of the Judiciary and the State Legislature. Under FOIL, the District is required to make all eligible records available for public inspection or copying within certain time frames. We evaluated the Districtís compliance with these requirements and found that the District was generally in compliance.
