Vermont's Draft TMDL Plan for Lake Champlain

posted May 30, 2014, 4:59 AM by Lyn Munno
On Thursday, May 29 (simultaneous with Watersheds United Vermont's first statewide gathering!) Vermont submitted to EPA its proposed Phase I implementation plan for the new Lake Champlain TMDL.  The Phase I plan outlines broad strategies across the entire affected area, with a strong emphasis on addressing nonpoint pollution sources.  Beginning in 2016, the state proposes to incorporate these strategies into tactical basin plans to prioritize projects at the local level.  By mid-November, 2014 the state will submit to EPA a detailed accounting of the funding sources that will support its proposed actions.
