Aquifer Protection Area Agency

To minimize the potential for contamination of the public drinking water supply wells, there are 28 regulated activities that apply to any part, wholly or partially, of land found in any one of the four Aquifer Protection Areas in Meriden. The Regulations restrict development of certain new land use activities that use, store, handle or dispose of hazardous materials and require existing regulated land uses to register and follow best management practices.  Any person may apply for a permit to add a regulated activity or expand an existing regulated activity to a facility where a registered regulated activity occurs.
