Reviewing New Development Projects

In addition to keeping high-risk activities out of sensitive areas through acquisition, easements, or zoning, a municipality may wish to exercise some level of control over new development. Site plan and subdivision review, typically performed by municipal planning boards for new developments, may include consideration of potential impacts to groundwater quality, particularly in sensitive areas.
