Missisquoi River Basin - Vermont: A Watershed Approach to Improving Water Quality in Lake Champlain

Missisquoi River Watershed Vermont









Exerpt from Introduction:

Lake Champlain is one of the largest bodies of freshwater in the world. Most of its 120 mile length and drainage basin is divided between Vermont and New York. The most northern end of the Lake extends into the province of Quebec in Canada. Due to the worsening water quality problems in Lake Champlain the Lake Champlain Special Designation Act (Public Law 101-596) was signed into law on November 16th, 1990. This Act has lead to an ongoing multi-jurisdictional effort comprised of the states of New York and Vermont, and the province of Quebec to address water quality and other concerns in the Lake Basin.
