Lake Champlain Program Releases Updated Management Plan

The Lake Champlain Basin Program has released a new version of Opportunities for Action: An Evolving Plan for the Future of the Lake Champlain Basin.

The management plan is expected to guide the LCBP’s work over the next five years in improving and restoring water quality and ecosystem integrity in the watershed.

The report lays out objectives and strategies to address four primary goals: Clean Water, Healthy Ecosystems, Thriving Communities, and an Informed and Involved Public.

The 2017 version of the plan is its fourth iteration. Like previous updates in 2003 and 2010, the 2017 version addresses the latest challenges and opportunities related to nutrient loading, aquatic invasive species, habitat conservation, and cultural heritage preservation.
