Solving Vermont’s water quality challenges is a multi-decade commitment and requires a significant investment. The Vermont Clean Water Initiative 2018 Investment Report offers accountability for how the State of Vermont has invested in clean water over the past three years and the results of those investments. In the last three years, Vermont’s clean water investments have increased by 260%. The report demonstrates how these investments are making a difference to improve water quality for Vermonters, while also supporting public health and safety, flood resilience, fish and wildlife habitat, outdoor recreation, and the working landscape.
State agencies and their local partners, such as municipalities, farmers, and watershed organizations, have made a tremendous effort to develop and install clean water projects. Every investment made in these projects makes a difference. The public can now learn more about individual clean water projects, funded across state government, using the newly launched Interagency Clean Water Projects Dashboard. Access the dashboard from our Clean Water Initiative Projects website. Explore clean water project details through a search engine and an interactive map; find projects in your region and area of interest; and view or download individual project reports. See the dashboard fact sheet for more information on its features.
