Vermont Wetland Rules.

Vermont Proposed Rule: 22P024

AGENCY: Agency of Natural Resources, Environmental Conservation

CONCISE SUMMARY: The proposed amendments are intended to clarify the Agency's authority to reclassify wetlands in general and clarify the Agency's jurisdiction over certain significant wetland types. The proposed amendments rearticulate the Agency's statutory authority to reclassify categories of wetlands in general, and list wetland types that have been categorically determined to be Class II based on an evaluation of their functions and values. Proposed amendments to Section 8 clarify how public notice is provided for categorical wetland determinations. Appendix A is also amended to reclassify Ward's Marsh and Eshqua Bog as Class I wetlands.
