Watersheds United Vermont, The Nature Conservancy and the VT Department of Environmental Conservation are hosting a two-hour training webinar on the Water Quality Blueprint and Clean Water Roadmap for the Lake Champlain Basin. This training is intended to help participants develop confidence in using these online tools in their everyday work for project development and planning.
The first part will train participants in how to use the Water Quality Blueprint to focus on prioritizing sites for protection and restoration in the Lake Champlain Basin. This will highlight sites of particular importance for restoration practices, including tree planting, and will train participants to use this tool to provide key supporting information for ERP grant applications. The second part will be a training on VT DEC’s Clean Water Roadmap. The Roadmap allows users to explore estimated Total Phosphorus loading by sector at multiple watershed scales and apply custom best management practice scenarios to investigate potential reductions.
Participants will be able to participate by webinar or attend in person at TNC’s office at 575 Stone Cutters Way in Montpelier (parking is easy and free; please be aware this is a one way street).
Everyone is welcome, but please note that these tools are currently focused on the Champlain Basin.
