Sensitive Groundwater: lands where there is a significant risk of groundwater degradation from activities conducted at or near the land surface (e.g. sinkholes and areas adjacent to public supply wells).
Riparian Lands: lands adjacent to public waters, drainage systems, wetlands or locally designated priority waters identified in a comprehensive local water management plan.
Wetland Restoration Areas: lands containing legally drained wetlands that are feasible to restore to their pre-drainage condition.
Marginal Agricultural Cropland: lands that are classified as highly erodible and have been cropped two of the five years prior to the date of application.
Other Environmentally Sensitive Lands: lands such as pastured hillsides, agricultural woodlots, and living snow fences, which provide protection of water and soil resources and furnish important fish and wildlife habitat.
