Vt. Issues Towns New Stormwater Permits

The Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation is working to reduce water pollution in the Lake Champlain watershed by requiring a number of municipalities and other groups to do more to control storm water runoff.

State ordered to improve stormwater controls

Within the next few weeks, the state will tell about 400 property owners in Chittenden County that they have to help control stormwater pollution. The Agency of Natural Resources will impose the new regulation in response to a court order. The court said five streams have been damaged by run-off from parking lots and streets and they need to be cleaned up.
