Protect Vermont’s Lakes; Contact Your Legislator
The Vermont legislature is discussing a bill to keep pollution out of lakes and ponds across the state. The bill, H.223, is smart, forward-thinking and long overdue legislation that is based on undisputed science.
The bill would encourage maintenance of vegetation around lakes and ponds (discouraging development like that pictured here) in order to keep polluted runoff and sediment from running into lakes. It would also assure strong property values over the long term for lakefront property, boost wildlife habitat, and help minimize the impact of flooding. Learn how you can help support this bill!
