Meetings on Lake Champlain Cleanup Efforts

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.

EPA is working closely with the State of Vermont in preparing a formal plan to reduce phosphorous runoff into Lake Champlain by developing a “Total Maximum Daily Load” (TMDL) that will place a cap on the maximum amount of phosphorous that is allowed to enter the Lake and still meet Vermont’s water quality standards.

As we continue to explore options for restoring Lake Champlain, we look forward to engaging Vermont’s citizens fully in the process,” said Curt Spalding, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s New England Regional Administrator. “During the meetings, we will update the public on how we are working with state environmental officials to develop a TMDL that will protect Lake Champlain and ensure the lake supports a vital and healthy ecology for our children and grandchildren.”

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
