MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The state of Vermont has announced its intent to provide its highest level of environmental protection to four wetlands that are deemed exceptional or irreplaceable.

Black Gum Swamps in Vernon, Dennis Pond Wetlands in Brunswick, Chickering Fen in Calais, and Sandbar Wetlands in Milton and Colchester have been given Class 1 wetlands designation.

In order to designate a new wetland as Class I, the Vermont Wetland Rules need to be amended. Proposed changes to the rule are currently posted on the Secretary of State’s website and are on public notice until November 2nd.

Three public meetings will be held near the four wetlands.
