Water is one of our most basic needs. The greater Burlington community is fortunate to have the water of Lake Champlain at our doorstep. We drink it, play in it, irrigate with it, move people and things in it. Our shared use and history help bring our community together. But recently, water quality issues have been an increasingly big challenge. How has this impacted our community's health, well-being, and culture? Can we manage this incredible resource, balancing the many different needs of residents, farmers, businesses, and tourists, and still preserve our water quality?

A panel of scientists, policy experts, and advocates share ways that we as a community can support our waterways for generations to come.

Panelists: Ashley Eaton, Watershed and Lake Education Coordinator, University of Vermont; Lori Fisher, Executive Director, Lake Champlain Committee; Megan Moir, Public Works Division Director of Water Resources, City of Burlington

Moderator: Olivia Pena, Greater Burlington Women's Forum Leadership Team

Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger Offers City Resources in response to Covid 19 Pandemic

Burlington Resource & Recovery Center: On Monday, March 23, we launched the Burlington COVID-19 Resource & Recovery Center, or RRC. The RRC's function is to provide relief to the economic disruption of COVID-19. If you are a renter worried about housing security, a business owner seeking access to federal assistance, a person experiencing homelessness who needs shelter, a Burlingtonian looking for information about City taxes and fees during this time or the federal aid that is coming, or someone looking to volunteer safely, you can get a 1-1 (remote) consult at the RRC and find many resources on the website. For more information, call (802) 755-7239 or go to the City website:
