Jay Peak Resort 2022 Water Quality Remediation Plan Update

The Watershed Management Division is making available for public comment the Jay Peak Resort 2022 Water Quality Remediation Plan Update. A Water Quality Remediation Plan (WQRP) has been developed to address water quality impairments to streams near Jay Peak Resort. The WQRP sets forth actions to be taken to improve water quality as well as a monitoring plan to track improvements. The goal of the WQRP is to return the impaired streams to compliance with the Vermont Water Quality Standards. The purpose of this update is to identify any new proposed development activities, sediment reduction measures, or best management practices if stream segments in question did not meet interim or attainment biocriteria targets during the previous year’s monitoring. Changes to monitoring activities may also be included.

In accordance with the Division’s Procedure for Water Quality Remediation Plans, a comment period has been established to receive written comment on the above amendment. After the close of the comment period, the Division will consider all public comments and will prepare and post a written response to comments. The deadline for comment submittal is August 31, 2022.

A public meeting may be requested by any member of the public during the comment period.
