Lake Carmi is one of Vermont’s jewels. Nestled among hills less than a one-hour drive northeast of Burlington, this 1,400-acre lake is a popular destination for anglers, birders, boaters, and campers. Lake Carmi State Park offers 173 campsites as well as a boat launch, day-use picnic area, swimming beach, and walking trails. 

During 2017, Lake Carmi’s summer recreational season was cut short by an intense, prolonged cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) bloom, causing many to ask what actions had been taken to improve water quality and what else could be done. 

This page serves as a central location for information about monitoring and management of Lake Carmi’s water quality, with emphasis on actions in the watershed.
