Clean Water Fund: Developing Long Term Clean Water Funding Recommendations

The Clean Water Fund was established in June of 2015 when Governor Shumlin signed into law Act 64, the Vermont Clean Water Act.  The Fund is supported by a 0.2 percent surcharge on the property transfer tax on properties over $100,000.  The challenge now facing the state is how to develop a funding solution for the Fund.
