MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation is holding two public meetings on a draft water quality management plan.

The plan deals with the Passumpsic and Upper Connecticut River Basin. Officials say it was developed to improve water quality and aquatic habitats as well as incorporate state and federal recommendations.

Officials say some top priorities in the plan include improved river corridor and floodplain protections in town zoning, establishing a water quality sampling program and road erosion inventories.

Meetings will be held from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The first will be on April 17 in Brunswick at the Silvio O. Conte refuge visitor center. The next one will be held April 22 in St. Johnsbury.
