Groups band together to protect lakes

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

People who live near six Vermont lakes are banding together to try to focus more resources on lake protection efforts.

Organizers think it will be easier to the state work with the state as one larger organization. The group says the state's smaller lakes -- Lake St. Catherine, Lake Bomoseen, Lake Dunmore/Fern Lake, Lake Hortonia, and Sunrise Lake -- face serious challenges from pollution, invasive species and stress from development.

The Coalition of Vermont Lakes says it will seek to improve conditions through research, education and community involvement.
