Water is one of our most basic needs. The greater Burlington community is fortunate to have the water of Lake Champlain at our doorstep. We drink it, play in it, irrigate with it, move people and things in it. Our shared use and history help bring our community together. But recently, water quality issues have been an increasingly big challenge. How has this impacted our community's health, well-being, and culture? Can we manage this incredible resource, balancing the many different needs of residents, farmers, businesses, and tourists, and still preserve our water quality?

A panel of scientists, policy experts, and advocates share ways that we as a community can support our waterways for generations to come.

Panelists: Ashley Eaton, Watershed and Lake Education Coordinator, University of Vermont; Lori Fisher, Executive Director, Lake Champlain Committee; Megan Moir, Public Works Division Director of Water Resources, City of Burlington

Moderator: Olivia Pena, Greater Burlington Women's Forum Leadership Team
