Jay Peak Stormwater Discharge Settlement

posted Mar 9, 2015, 8:46 AM by Lyn Munno
Vermont Natural Resources Council, Jay Peak Resort and the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation reached a settlement last week requiring the Resort to clean up streams degraded by past development before proceeding with construction of new buildings and trails. According to a VNRC release, "under the agreement, three polluted streams around the resort must be cleaned up according to an aggressive timeline. If not, new construction at the resort would have to be put on hold. Another innovative provision of this agreement – that there be no net increase in pollution of these streams until they are cleaned up – could become a model for other polluted streams across Vermont."
