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.
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.
