invasive algae found last summer in several Vermont rivers appears not to have spread to other streams
around the state. But
state officials are still concerned. They say that anglers and other people who
travel from river to river should take precautions to contain the outbreak.
John Dillon reports.
The town of Arlington is finishing a deal to buy 12 acres of land along the
Batten Kill, a portion of which would be used as a fishing access to the world
famous trout stream.
Last year The
Vermont Land Trust reached an agreement to buy the land and a historic barn.
The Land Trust will help the town with the purchase and hold a conservation
easement on the property.
