The state Assembly recently passed legislation that eliminates a costly mandate for small campgrounds in New York.
The bill removes a requirement that campgrounds with 15 sites or less install and maintain dumping stations for sewage disposal.
Instead, those campgrounds will now be able to send visitors to nearby dumping stations to get rid of their waste.
Supporters say the bill helps owners of small campgrounds in the North Country avoid unnecessary expenses while keeping costs down for visitors.
According to the bill, campground owners will need to supply a list of at least three dumping stations within 30 miles of the site. Campgrounds that don't have onsite dumping stations will need to inspect each site once a week in order to look for environmental hazards.
