The Clean Water Roadmap (CWR) is a suite of tools specifically designed to support Vermont DEC's planning and outreach efforts related to implementation of the Total Maximum Daily Loading (TMDL) for phosphorus in the Lake Champlain basin. The CWR allows users to map and interact with watershed modeling results related to non-point total phosphorus (TP) loading sources and conservation in the Lake Champlain Basin, including “baseline” total phosphorus loading rates at various basin scales and components of the Water Quality Blueprint developed by the The Nature Conservancy. CWR scenarios are used to explore the relative benefits in terms of TP load reduction of applying various best management practices (BMPs) to land areas characterized by specific land use, soil, and slope conditions.
