Brattleboro Excavation and Trench Permits Required

Excavation and Trench Permit

Beginning this construction season anyone performing excavation work in the Town of Brattleboro right-of-way or on systems involving Town infrastructure must have an Excavation and Trench Permit. The permit will allow Public Works to have greater communication with homeowners and contractors about Town infrastructure and important steps for a safe workplace prior to beginning excavation. It will also ensure that at the end of the project that the ground surface covers (pavement, concrete, plantings) are left in proper condition.

The permit is free of charge and applications can be found on-line at, on the Public Works website, at the Brattleboro Planning Office, and Public Works.

If you have further questions, please contact the Department of Public Works at 802 254-4255.
