MONTPELIER, VT – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is hosting a series of public meetings this November to outline the next steps in Vermont’s efforts to restore water quality in Lake Champlain. The meetings will be moderated by the Lake Champlain Basin Program, and will include both afternoon and evening sessions to encourage participation by all interested persons.

The November meetings have three major goals: EPA will provide a technical update on the phosphorus reductions Vermont needs to make, share the process and timeline for completing and implementing the plan, and outline a draft framework for monitoring progress. Lake Champlain Basin Phosphorus Clean Water Act TMDL Public Meetings will be held at the following locations:
