The Science Behind Lake Champlain’s Health

Print More

The state of Vermont
has spent $85 million dollars in the last five years to clean up Lake
Champlain, but so far, we’ve seen little in the way of results. On the next Vermont Edition, we go beyond the
politics of the clean-up, and look into the science behind the lake’s
health. UVM Lake Scientist, Mary Watzin,
guides us through a discussion about the lake’s complex ecosystem, and how
pollution affects it.

Also, Burlington Free Press reporter Candace Page joins
us to talk about efforts to control sea lamprey in Lake Champlain.
