Good environmental data is critical to implementing the management plan Opportunities for Action. Since 1992, the Lake Champlain Basin Program has provided funding for the Long-term Monitoring Program on Lake Champlain, and has supported a variety of other programs—including monitoring for cyanobacteria, bacteria at beaches, and toxins in fish tissue—that protect human health and environmental quality.
