If your faucet drips or your toilet runs it can waste over 10,000 gallons a year -- the amount of water in a typical backyard swimming pool. More than one trillion gallons of water are lost annually in the U.S. due to easy-to-fix household leaks.

Stay tuned for April and May 2019 clean up dates and locations!

The Lake Champlain Committee will be co-hosting April Stools' Day and Scoop The Poop clean up events in April and May 2019! The winter months tend to make some dog owners forget to pick up after their canine companions. These forgotten hound mounds do not disappear with the spring melt, but instead runoff into our local waterbodies causing environmental and public health concerns. Join together with community volunteers to get rid of leftover pet waste in your neighborhood!

If you are interested in organizing a clean-up in your community, contact LCC's Education and Outreach Coordinator, Laura Pratt, so we can help facilitate some spring cleaning in your neighborhood.
