MAPP's Assessment and Listing Process is driven by Vermont's State Water Quality Standards. In 2014 the Watershed Management Division of the VT Department of Environmental Conservation completed a review and update of the Vermont Water Quality Standards. A triennial review of State water quality standards is required by the Clean Water Act.
What is the Monitoring, Assessment and Planning Program?
Green Infrastructure describes a set of practices and design principles that uses natural processes to manage the effects of urbanization on water. The 2017 Vermont Stormwater Management Manual Rule and Design Guidance has been updated to incorporate more green infrastructure stormwater treatment practices into the treatment standards and design requireents for projects that require a state issued operational stormwater permit.
