Yesterday evening, March 31, 2014, the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation submitted to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a draft Phase One Plan describing a proposal for addressing pollution in Lake Champlain. This submission meets the deadline set by EPA and will provide an opportunity for Vermont to receive comments on its proposal before Governor Shumlin submits the state’s final plan later this Spring. A link to the draft plan can be found at: http://www.watershedmanagement.vt.gov/erp/champlain/docs/lctmdlphase1draft.pdf
