Wetland Maps (produced by Windham Regional Commission)
In 2008, the Putney Conservation Commission began working with the WRC to create a series of wetland maps for the town.  These maps show wetlands both from National Wetlands Inventory (NWI) and Vermont Significant Wetlands Inventory (VSWI) maps. The Putney maps do not replace the VSWI maps (they are not official, regulatory documents), but instead supplement those maps by showing, in many cases, wetlands more accurately, and by showing some wetlands that do not appear on the VSWI.  The Conservation Commission is interested in working with the public to add additional, previously unmapped wetlands to these maps.

Planning Commission Work Maps
These maps were developed for the Putney Planning Commission in 2011 to support their work on the update of the Putney Town Plan. These are not town plan maps, but work or reference maps for the Planning Commission.  The data used for these maps is in many cases generalized and/or approximate.  Detailed review of some of these data has not occurred, and on-site investigation is required to verify the accuracy of these data.
