Monitoring, Assessment and Planning

The Monitoring, Assessment and Planning Program (MAPP) integrates three components of the Vermont water pollution control program. 

  • MAPP measures water quality indicators and evaluates these indicators in light of applicable standards or thresholds. 
  • Information about the condition of waters is then used to develop watershed plans that target waters for protection or remediation.
  • MAPP also conducts water quality modeling, oversees water quality remediation planning for regulated entities, and maintains a comprehensive water quality database representing Vermont’s surface waters.

Additional information and resources for each of the MAPP focus areas are available via the left navigation menu or the links below.
