Many wetlands do not appear on these maps. You are advised to review the site on the ground for wetlands, regardless of this preliminary review (https://dec.vermont.gov/watershed/wetlands/what/guide). To confirm the presence/absence of wetlands, contact the district wetland ecologist in the table above.

There is some chance that a wetland may be on this property.

Wetlands and buffers should be clearly identified before any work starts on this property, as work within these areas requires a permit.  Please contact the wetland ecologist listed in the table above to determine if there is a wetland on this property

It is likely that a wetland may be present on this property.

Wetlands and buffers should be clearly identified before any work starts on this property, as work within these areas requires a permit. Please contact the wetland ecologist listed in the table above to discuss your project and/or schedule a site visit.

Wetlands and buffers should be clearly identified and possibly delineated before any work starts on this property, as work within these areas requires a permit.  Please contact the district wetland ecologist in the table above to disuss your proje an/or schedule a site visit.

There is a wetland permit associated with this property.

A map showing a wetland delineation and conditions associated with this permit will be located in the Wetlands Program’s project file. To obtain a copy of this permit, check your town’s land records for this property or contact the wetland ecologist listed above.

More Information

A wetland permit was issued for this property.

This means a delineation was performed at the time of the permit issuance. Wetland delineations can be found in the Wetland Program’s project files, and are good for five years before they need to updated.
More Information

A wetland project has verified the presence of a Class I/II wetland on the subject property.

There may or may not be a wetland delineation associated with the Wetlands Program’s project file.
More Information

A wetland project has verified the presence of a wetland on the subject property.

Because the Vermont Wetland Rules changed after 2010, this wetland may now be considered Class II under today’s regulations. There may or may not be a wetland delineation associated with the Wetlands Program’s project file.
More Information

A wetland project has verified the presence of a Class III wetland on the subject property.

There may or may not be a wetland delineation associated with the Wetlands Program’s project file. If the designation or delineation is more than five years old, it may need reverification.

Vermont Significant Inventory Maps were originally adopted from National Wetland Inventory maps. These maps were taken from aerial photography, some dating back to the 1970’s. While about 93% of areas mapped on the VSWI are determined wetlands when field-verified, the boundaries shown are inaccurate. Wetland boundaries need to be verified in the field using methodology in the US Army Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineation Manual.

Wetland Advisory maps are a combination of wetland mapping created by towns, from individual site visits, or by advanced state mapping efforts. Base maps from aerial photography are more recent than VSWI maps. There is a high probability that mapped areas are wetlands, but boundaries shown on the maps are inaccurate. Wetland boundaries need to be verified in the field using methodology in the US Army Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineation Manual.

Hydric Rating: 4

Hydric soils are one part of a three-parameter approach to identifying wetlands.
These soils are very hydric, and have descriptors in the NRCS soil descriptions of mucks, peats, ponded, flooded, marsh, emergent wetland.

Hydric Rating: 3

Hydric soils are one part of a three-parameter approach to identifying wetlands.
These types of soils are often found in wetland conditions.

Hydric Rating: 2

Hydric soils are one part of a three-parameter approach to identifying wetlands.
These types of soils are commonly associated with wetlands where there are other parameters, in topographic lowlands, or associated with open water margins.
