BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Officials from Vermont, New York and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are going to sign a new Lake Champlain cleanup plan that will include dozens of specific actions that each side will take to reduce pollution.
Some of the tasks that will be outlined in the "Opportunities for Action" that will be signed Tuesday will be ways to reduce fertilizer pollution, to combat the introduction of invasive species and to limit pollutants that pose a public health risk.
Despite years of effort to clean the lake, the results have been mixed.
Gov. Jim Douglas is scheduled to sign the document in Grand Isle.
Meanwhile, incoming Gov.-elect Peter Shumlin tells the Burlington Free Press his administration will take a fresh look at efforts to clean up Lake Champlain.
