Healthy Riparian Area can Protect the Environment
It is important to remember that during all weather conditions, whether it be dry or wet, there are precautions and proper management practices to take in order to optimize the benefits of our current abundant water supply.

When soil erosion from water occurs, sediments and nutrients from fields, such as manure, are carried by the runoff causing pollution to water sources (streams, rivers, lakes, and dugouts), or leaching into groundwater sources. Such added nutrients from the runoff lead to the growth of undesirable aquatic plants and algae blooms in the water.

The vegetation along the banks of streams, rivers, lakes or dugouts, known as riparian areas, are essential for filtering these unwanted nutrients and sediments before they reach a water source.

Flooding raises pollution fears - Swamped farm fields and gorged rivers could worsen pollution worries for the flooded Lake Champlain because of the high amount of phosphorus that has washed into it. Heavy rains and snowmelt have caused the Winooski River to dump into the lake about 77 metric tons of phosphorus – that is more phosphorous than the amount that is discharged into the lake from all 60 wastewater treatment plants.
