Meeting to address Memphremagog algae bloom

Print More

People who live near Lake Memphremagog in Northeastern Vermont could join forces to protect the lake that crosses the border between Vermont and Quebec.

The interest in watershed protection and conservation has been spurred in part by a bloom last summer in the lake of toxic blue green algae.

Most of the watershed is in Vermont, but most of the lake is in Quebec, making this an international effort.

Ben Copans of the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation is hosting a meeting next week in Newport to discuss the issue.
