Kingston Town Warrant


1. Multi-level monitoring wells (to evaluate soil stratigraphy);

2. Cumulative impact nitrogen loading analysis employing a saturation buildout model. The analysis shall include verification that the development will not cause the nitrate nitrogen (NO3-N) concentration in groundwater beyond the site to exceed 5 mg/l; in zone B this standard is 10 mg/l;

3. Permeability testing;

4. Water quality sampling analysis;

5. Water table contours and groundwater flow direction.

C. Maximum Lot Coverage: Within the Aquifer Protection District, no more than 15 percent (15%) of a single lot may be rendered impervious to groundwater infiltration in Zone A. In Zone B, no more than 25 percent (25%) of a single lot may be rendered impervious to groundwater infiltration. However, in both Zone A and Zone B, lot coverage may be increased up to thirty-five percent (35%) if the applicant can show storm-water management techniques that would allow for recharge on the property to be developed. (Amended 03/08/2005; 03/13/2012)
