On June 4, 2014 almost 130 people gathered on a beautiful summer day on the waterfront of Lake Champlain at Main Street Landing in Burlington for VEC’s Third Annual Water Quality Conference. At the event Gov. Peter Shumlin signed into law legislation that sets new permitting standards for building within 250 feet of the state’s lake shorelines, The Shoreland Protection Act, which will take effect July 1 and applies to all lakes and ponds greater than 10 acres in size. We would like to thank all involved, including sponsors, presenters, panelists, exhibitors, and many more!
