The Northern Lake Champlain Direct Drainages (Basin 5) include all surface waters that drain into the northern section of Lake Champlain, beginning at the Ferrisburgh and Charlotte town line and ending at the Canadian border, excepting three major basins: the Missisquoi Bay, the Winooski and the Lamoille. More information about these and other major drainage basins is available on our Tactical Basin Planning home page.
