Upcoming Events: Lamoille River Tactical Basin Planning
2021 Public Comment Period - October 13 to November 12, 2021
The Watershed Investment Division is developing the 5-year update of the 2016 Lamoille Tactical Basin Plan. We have reviewed the list of actions from the 2016 plan and have developed an updated list of actions for 2021.
During January through April of 2020, we asked for your feedback to better understand your knowledge, concerns, and activities in relation to water quality in the Lamoille River Basin (Basin 7) both locally and watershed wide. This information was used in the development of the 2021 Basin 7 Plan. We received 139 responses.
The final draft of the plan will be available for review and public comment from October 13 to November 12, 2021. A hybrid virtual and in-person meeting will be held on Thursday, October 14, 2021, at 6PM in Hyde Park, and in satellite locations hosted by our partners in Jericho, Fairfax, Greensboro, and Berlin. Comments on the plan can be submitted from October 13 to November 12, 2021, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
