New York and Vermont Governors sign plan and Lake Champlain MOU
Tuesday, April 22, 2003

Lake Champlain Basin Program

Governor George E. Pataki of New York and Governor Jim Douglas of Vermont signed two important documents along Lake Champlain's shoreline. The governors met at the Crown Point New York State Historic Site to reaffirm the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that extends the partnership among Vermont, New York and Quebec to study, manage and protect the Lake, and the management plan for Lake Champlain, Opportunities for Action.

Originally signed in 1996, the Plan called for periodic updates and 2003 marks the first revision of the Plan. The regional administrators of the US Environmental Protection Agency also sign the management plan. The current administrators are Jane M. Kenny for EPA Region 2 (New York) and Robert W. Varney for EPA New England. Last Fall, the Lake Champlain Steering Committee endorsed the Plan.
