Tactical Basin Planning Services offered
MIDDLEBURY — Addison County Regional Planning Commission (ACRPC) will provide support for municipalities improving water quality. The work will focus on water quality in the Otter Creek and its tributaries as identified by the Otter Creek Tactical Basin Plan. ACRPC will be coordinating with the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), the Otter Creek Natural Resources Conservation District and the Addison County River Watch Collaborative in implementing the Otter Creek Basin Plan. The work is supported through grant from DEC. Activities began this fall and will continue through July 2021.
The funding allows ACRPC to assist municipal staff and boards in developing land use policy options such as stronger municipal protections against flood hazards and river corridor erosion, stormwater master planning, and other town plan or zoning changes that improve water quality. Additionally, ACRPC will help identify areas of high sediment and nutrient run-off.
