The Clean Water Roadmap (CWR) is a web-based tool developed to support tactical basin planning and outreach efforts for the Vermont Lake Champlain Phosphorus Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL).
The CWR allows users to map and interact with watershed modeling results related to non-point total phosphorus loading sources, including "baseline" total phosphorus loading rates, at various watershed scales within the Vermont portion of the Lake Champlain Basin.
Components of The Nature Conservancy’s Water Quality Blueprint, which highlight areas of greatest importance for conservation and water quality benefits, have also been integrated into the CWR.
The CWR also contains one expression of USEPA’s Reasonable Assurance Scenario, which is one of many possible combinations of management practices necessary to achieve the Lake Champlain TMDL.
The CWR presents results for non-point sources of phosphorus, but does not present results for direct wastewater discharges, nor in-channel erosion sources of phosphorus.
This website contains a compilation of modeling results and data intended for informational purposes only.
The Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the CWR developers do not warrant or guarantee the quality of the content on this website, and changes may have occurred since the information was posted to the CWR website.
DEC shall not be held liable for improper or incorrect use of the data described and/or contained herein.
In addition, the content of the CWR is not considered a component nor recommendation of any specific tactical basin plan or other approved water quality remediation plan, unless that tactical basin plan or other remediation plan specifically references a specific published scenario of the CWR.
All other parties receiving data obtained from the CWR must also be informed of these restrictions.
