Vermont Water Caucus

In late March, LCC joined with a number of other organizations interested in lakes and rivers to discuss ways to advance water quality policy in Vermont. The meeting was the first statewide effort to build grassroots support to protect Vermont’s waters. Discussion centered on pending legislation in Montpelier, proposals put forth by the Department of Environmental Conservation to amend the water quality standards, and processes to ensure the caucus is efficient and effective. The group intends to meet quarterly to discuss issues and organize positions to advance water quality policy. Many thanks to VNRC for organizing this group.
