Your Watershed

A recent county wide resource inventory identified Phosphorous runoff concerns in Shoreham, in particular, impacting water quality in the Lake Street area and the fishing access. This project would identify remedial projects, funding to mitigate and implementation in the second year.

The project would identify a suite of practices which when applied will reduce runoff to the Lake. Working with conservation partners, landowners will be enlisted to participate in trialing and or implementing practices i.e. cover crops, riparian buffer planting, sediment ponds and filters. The Town of Shoreham could also be a partner and participant as well private landowners.

Measures can be acres treated with cover crops, stream feet planted with trees, feet of ditches planted with grass, number of sediment ponds and filters.

Project will have a positive environmental impact on the southern Lake Champlain. This project will use experts, landowners, and municipalities in the southern Lake Champlain region.
