Of NY State facilities regulated under the CWA,

Based on enforcement data from 2004-2007, the New York Times surveyed Clean Water Act (CWA) violations in every US state.
The results were stunning.
In a large number of states, 50% or more of regulated facilities violated the Clean Water Act.
Even more shocking was just how infrequently these polluters were held accountable.
Of NY State facilities regulated under the CWA, 51.1% (About 856 of 1675) have listed violations.
