The Rules are Changing!

The Rules are Changing!

 
The Facilities Engineering Division, in response to Vermont Act 103 of 2016, has drafted an update to Environmental Protection Rule, Chapter 2: The Municipal Pollution Control Project Priority System.
This draft Rule defines how projects are ranked annually on the project priority list of the Clean Water State Revolving Fund, as well as certain project eligibilities, and now includes a project bypass system that is similar to the one used by the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund.  The draft Rule now considers broader ranges of project types and eligibilities, water quality concerns, and sustainability issues.  The draft Rule still considers public health concerns. The draft Rule also ranks how projects are considered for Vermont Pollution Control Grants and the way that those grant amounts are calculated.
 
We would sincerely appreciate your input into these changes and this process.  
Public comment is open through: Friday, September 29, 2017. 
The draft rule and forms are available at our website. http://dec.vermont.gov/facilities-engineering/rules 
A public hearing will be held on September 22, 2017 at the ANR Annex Building at 190 Junction Road in Berlin from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM. At the hearing, the Agency will provide an overview of the draft Rule and accept public comments and questions on the draft Rule.
