935.3 Definitions.
The several terms, words or phrases hereinafter mentioned shall be construed as follows:
(a) Item No. In Table I an item number is assigned consecutively to each specifically designated waters or portion thereof.
(b) Waters index number as appearing in Table I shall mean that number or abbreviation assigned to any designated waters or portion thereof for the purpose of identification.
(1) The numbering or index system used to identify specific waters of New York State was adapted from that used by the New York State Conservation Department in its biological survey series of reports on watersheds of the State. The primary waters of a drainage area, such as a river, large lake, bay or sound, is usually referred to by name or an abbreviation. Tributaries of primary river waters are consecutively numbered progressing upstream from the mouth. Tributaries of primary lake, bay or sound waters are consecutively numbered in a clockwise order from a defined point, usually the outlet of the primary waters. Subtributaries are numbered as encountered along the tributary proceeding from its mouth to the source, and in like manner all of its other stream courses are so numbered. Ponds and lakes are numbered in the order they are encountered within the system. Tributaries of such lakes and ponds are numbered consecutively as they enter, progressing clockwise around the lake or pond from its outlet or mouth. The numbers assigned to such lakes and ponds are prefixed by the letter P. When isolated lakes and ponds are referenced by a waters index number, it is merely for convenience of their identification and location within a subdrainage basin, and it is not necessarily indicative of their being tributary to any waters to which no surface connection is shown on the reference maps.
(2) This system was applied to the waters under consideration by the New York State Conservation Department in its Biological Survey of the Lower Hudson Watershed and Biological Survey of the Fresh Waters of Long Island in 1936 and 1938, respectively, and has been closely followed in connection with the numerical identification of the waters with the following exceptions: Some of the stream numbers do not run consecutively due to the omission of streams originally shown on the older maps employed by the Conservation Department at the time of its 1936 and 1938 surveys but not shown on later editions of maps reproduced herein. Conversely, streams, lakes and ponds not shown on the older maps but appearing on the newer maps are designated by suffix letters a, b, c, etc.
(3) The system as applied to the identification of the designated waters may be outlined as follows: Streams draining Long Island proper are identified by waters index numbers prefixed by the abbreviation “LI.” Streams draining the mainland and entering Long Island Sound are identified by waters index numbers prefixed by the abbreviation “LIS”. Waters of the East River are identified by waters index numbers prefixed by “ER”.
(4) The following table will illustrate how the designated waters may be identified through use of the waters index system:
Waters index numberName of watersExplanation
EREast RiverPrimary waters.
ER 3Bronx RiverThe third tributary entering East River above the mouth.
ER 3-22Grassy Sprain BrookThe 22nd tributary entering the Bronx River.
ER 3-22-4-P 1055Grassy Sprain Reservoir (located on the fourth tributary of Grassy Sprain Brook)The 1,055th pond or lake encountered in the biological survey area of the Lower Hudson River watershed.
ER (10.1)East RiverA point on the East River ten and one-tenth miles above the mouth.
LIS 8Mamaroneck RiverThe eighth tributary entering Long Island Sound encountered in a clockwise direction from Throgs Point.
LI 12Flushing CreekThe 12th stream encountered on Long Island proceeding in a clockwise direction around the island from Fort Hamilton.
(5) There are instances where a parenthetical decimal number appears following the name. Such number appearing within the parentheses indicates the distance in miles above the mouth to a point on the identified watercourse.
(c) The abbreviations trib., tribs., subtrib. and subtribs., indicating tributary, tributaries, subtributary and subtributaries, respectively, shall mean any stream, pond or other body of surface water which flows into any other stream, pond or other body of surface water; where no tributary, tributaries, subtributary or subtributaries are mentioned, the specifically designated waters shall include only the stream, pond or other body of water referenced by such waters index number; where a tributary, tributaries, subtributary or subtributaries are mentioned after the waters index number, the specifically designated waters shall include the stream, pond or other body of water referenced by such waters index number and all tributaries and subtributaries thereof, which are shown on the reference maps, excluding numbered ponds, unless exceptions are expressly stated.
(d) Name as appearing in Table I shall mean the name by which the specifically designated waters are known and which may appear on the reference maps. In cases of specifically designated waters which have no name, the named waters to which the unnamed waters are tributary are identified as far as possible.
(e) Description. The column headed “Description” contains designations of segments or sections of waters under consideration to which a particular assignment of a class and standards shall apply. Also included in this column is any useful information pertinent to the classification or standards.
(f) Map Ref. No. as appearing in Table I, means map reference number and indicates one or more of the following numbered maps reproduced herein completely or in part, on which maps the specifically designated waters and their index numbers are shown within the topographical limit line of the described drainage basins or areas. An index for map numbers is shown on Map 2, section 935.8, infra. The following maps were produced from original maps which may be procured through the Washington Distribution Section, Geological Survey, Silver Spring, Maryland:

(g) Class, as appearing in Table I and denoted by the letters AA, A, B, C, D, SA, SB, SC or SD or the Roman numeral I opposite each specifically designated waters, shall mean Class AA, A, B, C, D, SA, SB, SC, SD or I, as the case may be, as set forth in Part 701, supra..

The symbol (T) appearing after any class designation shall mean that the designated waters are trout waters and that the dissolved oxygen specification for trout waters shall apply thereto. The symbol (TS) after any class designation shall mean that the designated waters are suitable for trout spawning and that the dissolved oxygen specification for trout spawning waters shall apply thereto.
(i) The term trout as used in this Part means any fish in the following genera: Coregonus, Oncorhynchus, Prosopium, Salmo, Salvelinus and Thymallus.
