2018 Draft White River Tactical Basin Plan Public Meeting

The 2018 DRAFT White River Tactical Basin Plan (TBP) is now available for public comment. The Agency will be presenting an overview of the plan in partnership with White River Partnership and the White River Natural Resources Conservation District on Thursday, October 11th in Royalton at the Royalton Academy Building on 4266 Route 14 from 6:30-8PM. The Plan provides an overall assessment of the health of the White River basin and defines on-going and future actions and strategies to address high-priority stressors such as encroachment, stream channel erosion, land erosion, and pathogens. Recommendations in the plan were provided by State and Federal resource agencies, watershed partner organizations, planning commissions, municipalities, and individual citizens.

A series of public comment meetings are being held in October to gather feedback on the TBP presented by the VT Agency of Natural Resources in partnership with Two-Rivers Ottauquechee Regional Commission, White River Natural Resource Conservation District, White River Partnership, Central Vermont Regional Planning Commission (CVRPC) and the Rutland Regional Planning Commission.

The public is encouraged to attend the meetings, hear a presentation and offer their comments and suggestions. If you are unable to attend a meeting, you can access the interactive White River Tactical Basin Plan Story Map, which provides a summary of the plan and the remediation and protection priorities.
