First ever gubernatorial candidate forum centered on a Vermont “Clean Water Economy." Moderated by Peter Hirschfeld of Vermont Public Radio. 

The scope of issues related to water and the economy include: drinking water infrastructure, wastewater infrastructure, sustainable agriculture, TMDLs impacting several waterbodies statewide, renewable energy, water-based tourism, recreational waters, fish and wildlife, and the most recent ACCD CEDS Report which declares that in 200 of our 251 communities insufficient water/wastewater infrastructure limits economic opportunities. Democrats Peter Galbraith, Sue Minter, and Matt Dunne and Republicans Bruce Lisman and Phil Scott have all confirmed their participation.

Presented by Lake Champlain International. Co-sponsored by VT Rural Water Association, Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Lintilhac Foundation, Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility, Vermont Council Trout Unlimited, Vermont Conservation Voters, Rights & Democracy VT, Rural Vermont, and Green Mountain Water Environment Association.
