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.

Please see our latest press release outlining our efforts with our partners:  Joint_CVRPC_WNRCD_Basin Planning_Press Release

 

Winooski Basin Plan

CVRPC and the Department of Environmental Conservation thanks everyone for their input, feedback, comments, and participation in the public meetings. This plan is a huge coordinated effort on behalf of all those involved.

These plans are a wonderful example of collaborative partnerships and science-based protection and restoration prioritization as Vermonters work to meet the goals set forth in the plan and the state and federal Clean Water Acts. Keep up the good work!
