This is a New resource page for the remediation and restoration of the ecological balance of Lake Champlain. The Purple links are all PDF documents and all of the titles beginning with CWP are sourced from The Center for Watershed Protection website. The CWP website has an abundance of free information you only need to join the site to have access. I have selected the documents I felt were most applicable to helping Vermont remedy the issues with our Watershed. I will be adding more content; PDFs, website links etc. We were advocating for Vt Bill H.343 but now with new information we no longer support this bill.
