Int. No. 1138-A

 

By Council Members Ampry-Samuel, Rosenthal, Kallos, Constantinides, Eugene, Ayala and Rivera

 

A Local Law to the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring the department of health and mental hygiene to review documentation of annual inspections of water tanks where harmful bacteria are found, and to post the results online

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Section 17-194 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new subdivision i to read as follows:

i. 1. Wherever harmful bacteria are found in a water tank and reported to the department in accordance with section 141.07 of the health code, or where a water tank has been the subject of certain violations within the prior 12 months identified by the department, the department shall review documentation of the annual inspections required by subdivision b of this section for such water tank. The department may review such documentation without prior notice to the building’s owner, as authorized by law.

2. The department shall post the results of the documentation review required by paragraph 1 of this subdivision on its website and the web portal providing access to public data sets described in section 23-502 within 35 days of such review.

§ 2. This local law takes effect on the same date as a local law amending the administrative code of the city of New York, relating to qualifications for persons conducting inspections and maintenance on drinking water tanks, as proposed in introduction number 1157-A for the year 2018, takes effect, except that the commissioner may take such actions as are necessary for the implementation of this local law, including the promulgation of rules, before such date.
