The Natural Resources Board (NRB) is a nine member board which is divided into two panels, the Land Use Panel and the Water Resources Panel. The board was created by Act 115 of the Vermont General Assembly to succeed the Environmental and Water Resources Boards.

These panels manage the process for land use permits, initiate enforcement on related matters and petitions the environmental courts as needed, as well as managing resource waters designation & wetlands reclassification.
