Vermont holding hearing on plan for rivers

Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation is holding a public hearing on a water quality management plan for two Northeast Kingdom rivers.

The first hearing for the Passumpsic and Upper Connecticut River Basin is Thursday in Brunswick at the Silvio O. Conte refuge visitor center located on Vermont Route 105.

A second hearing will be held April 22 in St. Johnsbury.

The plan is designed to improve both water quality and aquatic habitats.

The plan presents the recommendations of state and federal resource agencies, watershed partner organizations, planning commissions, municipalities and individual citizens.

Both hearings are scheduled from 6-7:30 p.m.
