Watershed

Central Vermont Regional Planning Commission’s regional boundary matches perfectly to the upper portion of the Winooski River Basin.  It’s the Winooski River and its many tributaries that   CVRPC has been involved with assessment and planning.  CVRPC has been involved in stream geomorphic assessments across our Region utilizing the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources’ River Management Program Fluvial Geomorphic and Corridor Planning guidelines.  Our partners for this work include the Friends of the Winooski River, Winooski Natural Resource Conservation District, the River Management Program, and the municipalities of Central Vermont.
