Clean Water Initiative

The Clean Water Initiative Program (CWIP) funds, tracks, and reports on priority projects to restore Vermont’s waters, and communicates progress toward meeting water quality restoration targets outlined in the Total Maximum Daily Loads (or TMDLs). CWIP also coordinates funding, tracking, and reporting of clean water efforts for federal and state partners, including Clean Water Initiative partner state agencies – the Agencies of Agriculture, Food and Markets; Commerce and Community Development; Natural Resources; and Transportation – and the Lake Champlain Regional Conservation Partnership Program of the Natural Resources Conservation Service. In addition, CWIP offers technical expertise in stormwater master planning, illicit discharge detection and elimination, and green infrastructure.
