No grant or lease of any lands under water in Lake George shall be made by the commissioner unless the conservation department of the state of New York shall, prior to the issuance of any such grant or lease, advise the commissioner, in writing, that such grant or lease, if made, will not result in a hazard to navigation, impair the scenic beauty of Lake George or otherwise interfere with the use and enjoyment of Lake George and its facilities by the people of the state.
