Because so little of Vermont is served by municipal wastewater systems, the subdivision of property quickly becomes a wastewater issue. The state does not want to see new lots created that canít meet the regulations for an on-site wastewater system.
The subdivision of property requires a permit from the Wastewater Management Division, as described in the Wastewater Management section of this web site. Note, a new permit does not necessarily mean a new wastewater system must be built.
In addition, some towns have zoning and/or subdivision regulations governing the creation of new lots. These often deal with minimum lot sizes, setbacks, and the proposed use of the property.
