EPA disapproves Lake Champlain cleanup plan

A front page article in the Burlington Free Press on January 25 announced the disapproval by the EPA of a 2002 plan to reduce phosphorus, the primary pollutant in Lake Champlain.  In the past nine years $100 million has been spent in the cleanup effort, which appears to not have had any significant impact.  Further information about the disapproval may be found online at http://www.epa.gov/region1/eco/tmdl/pdfs/vt/LakeChamplainTMDLDisapprovalDecision.pdf.
