Vermont is rewriting the rulebook for how farmers drain their land of excess water, but the proposed rules don’t keep phosphorus and toxic chemicals out of our rivers and lakes.

We’ve already seen the harm unchecked pollution causes to our rivers and lakes. With climate change and ever-more-frequent rainstorms, the state has a responsibility to work with Vermont farmers to stop pollution from draining into Lake Champlain. Tell the Vermont Agency of Agriculture to put key regulations in place to protect our water from phosphorus pollution and toxic chemicals.

Keep phosphorus pollution and agrochemicals out of Lake Champlain.

Dear Mr. Patch,
