The Basin 10 Watershed Council is holding a watershed council meeting to discuss groundwater source protection strategies for the Black and Ottauquechee River watersheds.
The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources and its local partners are holding the meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 19 at Damon Hall in Hartland. Public input is essential to making the plan a meaningful guidance document for the Agency of Natural Resources.
Rodney Pingree, Chief of the Water Resources Section in the Water Supply Division, will present on the threats to groundwater resources and strategies for protection. Following the presentation, participants are asked to offer concerns, recommendations and actions to improve water quality in the future to be included in the State's Water Quality Management Plan.
The Plan being developed by the Agency will address water quality in rivers, streams, lakes and ponds throughout the two watersheds.
