Memphremagog Water Quality Protection Meeting Tonight In Newport

The Memphremagog Watershed Association annual meeting is tonight at 7 at the EastSide Restaurant in Newport. All community members are invited for light refreshments and informative presentations. The keynote presentation, titled "Vermont's Watershed Tactical Planning Process," will be presented by Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation representatives Ethan Swift and Ben Copans.

Swift, Watershed Coordinator for the Poultney-Mettowee and Otter Creek Watersheds, will contribute a statewide perspective on water quality protection. Copans will provide local input from his vantage point as Watershed Coordinator for the Lake Memphremagog, Passumpsic River, and Upper Connecticut River Watersheds.

MWA's Annual Public and Business Meeting is an opportunity for all to celebrate past accomplishments and anticipate new challenges. MWA was founded in 2007 as an organization dedicated to the preservation of the environment and natural beauty of the Memphremagog watershed and to ensure its protection for generations to come.

Over the last seven years, MWA has collaborated with local and state-level partners to take actions as identified in a watershed plan developed by Copans. While much has been accomplished, there is still much to do. If many community members take small steps toward improving water quality, big improvements will be made in the streams, rivers, wetlands, and lakes of the Northeast Kingdom. MWA invites all to join and participate.
