USA: EPA, Vermont Seek Comments on Lake Champlain Cleanup

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the State of Vermont are seeking public input on a recently released draft proposal to restore Lake Champlain.

Also released is a timeline for completing the Lake Champlain restoration plan, which includes a number of opportunities for the public to get involved.

The EPA and the State of Vermont are holding a series of six public meetings in December 2013, to discuss the draft “Proposal for a Clean Lake Champlain” – the State’s proposal for reducing water pollution that is degrading Lake Champlain and its tributaries.

The meetings will be moderated by the Lake Champlain Basin Program and held in various communities around the region, with morning, afternoon, and evening sessions in an attempt to accommodate and encourage all interested persons to participate.

The public can also submit comments on the draft proposal to the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (VDEC) by January 17, 2014.
