Clean Water Roadmap Webinar

Imagine a web-based mapping tool that geographically shows and quantifies phosphorus sources by land use sector across the Lake Champlain Basin in Vermont. Sound too good to be true? It's not—meet the Clean Water Roadmap, developed with support from Keurig Green Mountain and The Nature Conservancy.

During this online presentation, environmental consultants LimnoTech will explain how to use this valuable tool, from selecting watersheds at various scales, to retrieving estimated phosphorus loads and yields across different land uses. A question-and-answer session will follow.

Attend online or join us in the Winooski Room at the National Life Complex in Montpelier. Seating is limited though, so if you plan to attend in person, RSVP early by emailing anr.cleanwatervt@vermont.gov.
