Description

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the State of Vermont hold this public meeting to discuss new pollution reduction targets – often referred to as a TMDL – to prevent pollution from flowing into Lake Champlain and its tributaries. The meeting is moderated by the Lake Champlain Basin Program.
EPA officials present the Lake Champlain phosphorus reduction plan called a “Total Maximum Daily Load” (TMDL) that will place a cap on the maximum amount of phosphorous that is allowed to enter the Lake and still meet Vermont’s water quality standards. EPA anticipates releasing the TMDL by August 14, which will begin a 30-day public comment period.
For information or for a copy of the TMDL following the anticipated August 14th release:
