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 on Thursday, March 23rd, environmental consultants LimnoTech explained how to use this valuable tool, from selecting watersheds at various scales, to retrieving estimated phosphorus loads and yields across different land uses.
