Aquifer Protection Agency


There are 28 regulated activities, which when located or conducted, wholly or partially in any one of the four Aquifer Protection Areas in Town, must follow the Regulations to minimize the potential for contamination of the public drinking water supply wells.  The Regulations restrict development of certain new land use activities that use, store, handle or dispose of hazardous materials and require existing regulated land uses to register and follow best manangement practices.  Any person may apply for a permit to add a regulated activity or expand an existing regulated activity to a facility where a registered regulated activity occurs.
