Water Resources Assistance

VT-Towns-Image

With grant support from the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources and other granting sources, MAC offers professional assistance for municipalities seeking to promote comprehensive water quality and water resource protection. We can assist with recommended updates to land use regulations with sample language that protects floodplains, river corridors and lake shorelands, and encourages low impact development stormwater management. For more information, contact Milly Archer, VLCT Water Resources Coordinator.
