Feds: Lake Champlain cleanup plan needs work

Posted: Updated:

Federal regulators say Vermont's plan for cleaning up Lake Champlain needs improvement.

The state is working to reduce phosphorus buildup in the lake by reducing runoff from farms and developed areas, and discharges from sewage plants.

But the Environmental Protection Agency says the state's plan needs to be strengthened in several areas. One big concern is the state has not identified how to pay for the plan, including committing state dollars. The EPA wants to see a revised plan by the end of the month, including a signed commitment from the governor.
