Conserving Land, Protecting Water Quality

Water quality has been a hot topic in the news these days. Development, industry, farms, roads and streambank erosion add phosphorus and other pollutants to our state’s streams and rivers, and ultimately cause water quality issues such as algae blooms in Lake Champlain. Vermont’s water quality has the attention of the state and federal government along with many in the nonprofit sector.

The Vermont Land Trust, while best known for conserving land, is intimately involved with the state’s waters, too. Over the past 15 years, VLT has been developing new ways to address water quality in our conservation easements. Read more.
