The LCBP has produced a new publication that highlights the activities of U.S. federal agencies in the Lake Champlain Basin. Efforts to improve water quality and ecosystem integrity in the Basin rely on the programs and support of several key federal partners. They provide financial and technical assistance to state and local partners, and implement critical projects of their own to restore and protect the Lake and its watershed. The Federal Partners Workgroup was created to ensure coordination among these agencies. The LCBP helps to facilitate the group’s functions and activities by organizing meetings and providing communications support.
