and Draft White River Tactical Basin Plan

 

Tuesday October 9, 2018 7 PM, Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce

Montpelier, VT, (September 11, 2018) ‐ The Central Vermont Regional Planning Commission is

excited to announce a public meeting on the Draft Winooski Basin Plan and the Draft White

River Basin Plan. The Central Vermont Regional Planning Commission will be partnering with

the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation to present these plans at the meeting

for public comment.

 

The Vermont Clean Water Act requires the development of Tactical Basin Plans for each of

Vermont’s 15 river basins to be adopted on a five‐year recurring cycle. These plans integrate

scientific assessments and stakeholder input to document future actions necessary to protect

and restore surface waters. The Central Vermont Regional Planning Commission is assisting the

Agency of Natural Resources in the development and implementation of the plans. Please

come to the public meeting to hear details on the plans and to provide any comments to the

Board of Commissioners and the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation.

Tactical Basin Plan prior to this meeting will be available at
