The Lake Champlain Long-Term Water Quality and Biological Monitoring Project (LTMP) is designed to measure overall ecosystem health of Lake Champlain based on key ecosystem indicators and to assess long-term effects of management actions and other environmental changes.
Vermonters love Lake Champlain. We depend on the lake for fishing, swimming, boating, and other recreational pursuits. It provides drinking water. Summer tourism and property values are tied to its health and beauty. The lake attracts businesses with a workforce that appreciates the lake’s natural beauty and Vermont’s working landscape.
