There are 45 Trout (T) and Trout Spawning (TS) streams along the pipeline route. However, the proposed route would cross them 84 times.

T and TS streams are sensitive and get special protections. This is because trout can only survive in clear cold waters with high levels of dissolved oxygen.

DEC classifies streams by alphabetical codes.

Key to letter Codes

See “NYS Water Quality Standards” (or print the PDF ) for what these classifications mean – and how the DEC protects them.

Note: “UNT” is an abbreviation for Un-Named Tributary.

A very small stream without a name, which leads into a larger stream.


NY Waterbodies Containing Sensitive Fisheries

These would be crossed by the pipeline route.
