Lake Champlain Restoration Plan Progress Report

Join Kari Dolan, Clean Water Initiative Program Manager, to learn about the State of Vermont's progress completing milestones necessary to clean up Lake Champlain. These milestones are spelled out in the Lake Champlain restoration plan, known as the Phosphorus Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) for Vermont Segments of Lake Champlain accountability framework. Recently, the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation reported to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on the completion of these “Phase 1” milestones. These milestones put the necessary programs in place to reduce phosphorus inputs to Lake Champlain that lead to harmful cyanobacteria blooms. Milestones include updating Vermont’s Required Agricultural Practices, establishing Vermont’s Municipal Roads General Permit, and maintaining funds to support clean water improvement projects.

LPP Annual Spring meeting/training

Spring is on the way and that means LPP spring training/annual meeting and a chance to connect with your fellow LaRosa partners and the folks who process the samples you collect. This year’s meeting will be held in the same place as last year – Rm 019 of the Hills building on the UVM campus - on April 6th from 10am to 1pm. The meeting will consist of the usual overview and greeting from Jim Kellogg and a training session on handling, pre-logging, transporting, delivering, etc of samples from Dan Needham. We will also hear a presentation from Kristen Underwood of South Mountain R&CS on use of the reporting templates she developed over this last season with time for questions to follow. As always, Jim will be providing a spread of snacks and refreshments.
