The draft Missisquoi Bay Basin Water Quality Management Plan has been released for review. The plan lays out the current condition of the surface waters and aquatic habitat, water quality problems, and strategies to improve and restore water quality. It covers the Missisquoi River watershed including Black Creek, Tyler Branch, and Trout River, and the Rock and Pike Rivers. Three public meetings have been scheduled where plan details will be presented and participants will be able to offer comments and suggestions. Times and locations of the meetings can be found on the Vermont DEC web-site.
