New York City and State Cooling Tower Laws & Tower Registration Guide

Posted by Greg Frazier on Mon, Oct 26, 2015 @ 02:13 PM

If you are a building owner in New York operating a cooling tower, you have probably heard all kinds of theories about the "new rules" for maintaining them. As per the new cooling tower laws that were recently passed in both New York City and New York State, cooling towers that exist in the Five Boroughs of NYC must be electronically registered with both the city and state; and with just the state for the rest of counties throughout New York. All cooling towers throughout the entire State of New York were required to be registered through their appropriate websites by no later than September 17th, 2015. There is a New York City Cooling Tower Registration Website and a New York State Cooling Tower Registration Website that have been set up for this purpose. This post will explain who is responsible for registering NY cooling towers and what information will be required now and in the future.
