Permit # / ID
The General Permit is for certain specified water quality improvement projects conducted within Class II wetlands and associated buffer zones. Activities eligible for coverage under this general permit are limited to specific practices that are intended to improve water quality either by mitigating known pollution sources, or by reducing flood hazards. Eligible activities are limited by square footage thresholds, and by the type of impacted wetland. Project proponents may self-verify coverage and must register the activity with the Vermont Wetlands Program, except for farm practices described in the permit. The specific water quality improvement projects include stream crossing structure replacement, failed wastewater system replacement, retrofits for Stormwater treatment practices, and Vermont Natural Resources Conservation Services Conservation Practice Standards on farms for access roads, heavy use protection areas, stream crossings, trails and walkways, and artificial wetlands.
