Area Farmers Receive Funding to Improve Lake Water Quality

The money, recovered from a 2007 case in which a major power company violated the Clean Air Act, will target phosphorus reduction from area farms, improving operations, fighting pollution, and improving the health of Lake Champlain.

The southern sections of Lake Champlain have been hit especially hard by accelerated aquatic weed growth caused by high nutrient levels, including phosphorus.

Stormwater Pollution is Killing Coho Before Spawning - Researchers at NOAA’s Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Seattle worked with collaborators, including the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, local tribes and the Wild Fish Conservancy, to survey 51 sites from 2000 to 2011 in streams all over the Puget Sound basin. They used the survey data with a new computer model to map predicted coho death rates. The results show that in an estimated 40 percent of their range in the Puget Sound Basin, 10 to 40 percent of coho salmon die before they can even spawn because of pollution.
