State planners and regional water quality partners are hosting a virtual meeting on January 24 to introduce the state’s kick-off of the update to the Tactical Basin Plan for the Deerfield and lower Connecticut Rivers and adjacent Connecticut River Tributaries (Basin 12). This plan is being developed to protect and restore rivers, lakes, and wetlands in southeastern Vermont from Stratton to Vernon.

The Tactical Basin Plan identifies actions that will protect or improve rivers, lakes, and wetlands through cost-effective projects, including floodplain restorations and dam removals. The plan will set priority strategies focused on water quality and aquatic habitat to be implemented over the coming five years.

Visit the Basin 12 web page to learn more about the Deerfield River and Plan in the StoryMap, and to submit input through the Online Survey.
