Limitations
Data is entered from each spill incident as reported. NYSDEC is unable to field check and verify all reported information and therefore incomplete or inaccurate information may result. NYSDEC provides this data “as is.” The burden for determining fitness for its use lies entirely with the user. All documentation provided is an integral part of the data set. The Data Overview document provides critical context to understanding and minimizing misinterpretation of the spill data and must accompany any reuse of this dataset.
