Floating Objects

A floating object is an object floating on the surface of the water that isn’t an aid to navigation.
There could be anything from a mooring buoy to an environmental quality monitoring buoy. A floating object permit issued by NYS Parks is required on all waters in NYS except the tide waters of Nassau and Suffolk County.
