N.Y. Public Health Law Section 1385
Legislative intent

Sites formerly operated as landfills to dispose of toxic substances are exposing the citizens of the state to unnecessary hazards, the duration and extent of which is unknown. To develop a plan for the alleviation of these conditions, it is necessary to conduct a study to determine the extent of such hazards. The potential hazard believed to exist at a specific landfill site in the county of Niagara, has precipitated the need for immediate action to authorize the department of health to undertake such study and to conduct a pilot program to evaluate the effect of individual corrective systems in affected residences.
