Vermont Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Ecosystem Restoration Program
(formerly the Center for Clean and Clear)
This Program's mission takes action to accelerate the reduction of sediment and nutrient pollution, such as algae bloom-causing phosphorus, from uncontrolled runoff into our streams, rivers, ponds, wetlands, and lakes.
The Ecosystem Restoration Program provides leadership, financial resources, technical and educational assistance, and a sustained commitment to ensure that Vermont achieves and maintains high water quality standards, healthy and naturally stable rivers, well functioning wetlands, floodplains, and river corridors that can protect against flood impacts, and clean and well-buffered lakes.
