Batten Kill Watershed Alliance NY/VT Annual meeting
ARLINGTON -- At 7 p.m., the Batten Kill Watershed Alliance NY/VT will hold its annual meeting at the American Legion Hall, East Arlington Road. All habitat -- for people or for wildlife -- is based on clean water. The circulatory system of rainfall, groundwater, and surface water is the prerequisite for our lives and for the ecology of the Batten Kill watershed. Presentations at our annual meeting will provide information about initiatives by the state of Vermont to protect and restore the quality of the water systems upon which we rely.
"Vermont's Clean Water Future: Overcoming the State's Water Quality Challenges" will be the topic of Kari Dolan, Ecosystem Restoration Program Manager.
"Using a watershed framework to provide integrated water resource management for the restoration and protection of water resources in Vermont." By Ethan Swift, Watershed Coordinator for Basin One.
These presentations will serve to educate us about how to meet Vermont's clean water challenges. We need clean water for drinking to protect public health, to support economic activity, and to sustain our wildlife resources. Yet we also need to minimize the financial impacts of policies on municipalities, businesses, farms, and individuals. The water of the Batten Kill river system is relatively clean. How can we keep it that way? From Rte. 7A in Arlington turn east onto East Arlington Road, up the hill, turn right before the railroad tracks on Legion Road. Any questions contact Cynthia Browning, 802-375-9019 email@example.com
