Mayor Miro Weinberger Statement on Lake Champlain Cleanup Effort
 
“Burlingtonians are committed to a clean and healthy Lake Champlain and, over many years, we have invested substantially in the Lake's protection.  We welcome the release of a new Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) as a long-awaited step in the on-going efforts to improve protection of the lake, and thank Governor Shumlin’s Administration for its efforts to promote municipal flexibility and common sense policies within the plan.  We will be closely reviewing the lengthy TMDL document released today in the months ahead to understand if it will create the fair, effective, and efficient water policy that I and other local leaders have been advocating in recent years.”
