Managing Environmental Responsibilities

The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) Operations Division Stormwater Compliance Management Program seeks to:

  • Fulfill both Federal and State environmental and regulatory obligations;
  • Maintain our commitment to protecting and, to the extent reasonable and practicable, improving water quality and the environment;
  • Improve and maintain Vermont’s transportation system; and
  • Uphold the VTrans Environmental Stewardship Ethics Policy Statement.

VTrans Environmental Stewardship Ethics Policy Statement.

In 2007, VTrans Operations Division established and staffed a dedicated Stormwater Compliance Management Program in an effort to address ongoing and increasing Federal and State stormwater and water quality regulatory obligations. The program is managed by the VTrans Operations Environmental Coordinator (OEC) position. The primary duty of the OEC is to provide regulatory compliance and support with a specific emphasis under all Federal and State Stormwater Regulations.
