EPA, Vt., Canada partnering to map lake

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- The Environmental Protection Agency is on Lake Memphremagog this week, completing a survey to create a new depth map.

The new map is being made to assist in the development of a phosphorus reduction plan for the lake and act as a navigational charge for recreational users, with assistance of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the Quebec Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment, and Wildlife.

State officials say the new chart will cover all of Vermont and Quebec. It's meant for boaters who regularly cross the international border on Lake Memphremagog traveling between Newport and Magog, Quebec.

The Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation is partnering in the project, to obtain the data and develop the map.
