Weathersfield Groundwater Mapping
Presentation by Dr. Stephen Wright, University of Vermont
Location: Weathersfield Center Meeting House
Date: Thursday, July 27, 2017
Stephen Wright will present the results and maps made from a study of the groundwater of our town. Over the last year Stephen and his team walked areas of Weathersfield and created maps that:
• identify areas of more or less groundwater (for drinking and fire protection)
• depict groundwater recharge areas and depth to bedrock
• locate interesting features such as glacial potholes and eskers
• locate potentially unstable slopes
This valuable study and resulting maps was funded by various state and federal grants available through the Vermont STATEMAP committee.
The presentation is free and everyone is welcome. Refreshments will be served.
Sponsored by the Weathersfield Conservation Commission.

Dear Town Official,
The first day of summer is just around the corner which means a range of festivals and town-wide events will be taking place and organizations will be looking for ways to advertise. This is a reminder that it is illegal to hang banners or signs above State highways or anywhere within the highway right-of-way (minimum of 25’ from centerline of road).
Title 10 of the Vermont Statutes Annotated outlines the laws regarding signs and highway right-of-way. 10 V.S.A. §495 (d) states “Notwithstanding any other provisions of this title, a person, firm or corporation shall not erect or maintain any outdoor advertising structure, device or display within the limits of the highway right-of-way”. There are absolutely no exceptions to this law for banners hung above State maintained highways regardless of the type of event being advertised or the length of time the banner is displayed (10 V.S.A. §495 (e)).
Any illegally placed banners will be removed in accordance with 10 V.S.A. §497.
If the Town or an individual would like to place a sign or banner along a State highway and has questions about the legality of its placement, please contact me and I would be more than happy to discuss this matter with them.
District 2 Project Manager
