sources or construction of a sewage treatment plant; costs borne by a nearby municipality).
c. Describe how the subdivision allows existing services, through expanded use, to operate more

ii. Would groundwater supplies likely be contaminated or depleted as a result of the subdivision?
iii. Would construction of roads or building sites require cuts and fills on steep slopes or cause
erosion on unstable, readable soils? Would soils be contaminated by sewage treatment systems?
Describe the impacts that removal of vegetation would have on soil erosion, bank or shoreline
iv. Would the value of significant historical, visual, or open space features be reduced or
v. Describe possible natural hazards the subdivision could be subject to (e.g. natural hazards such
